This Licensing Conference is open to all members of the NAC. Eastwood Hall set in parkland just outside the village of Eastwood and is a new venue for the NAC. Once the former headquarters of the Nottinghamshire Coalfield, it has fantastic facilities for Conferences and hotel residents.
Licensing makes a fundamental contribution to how our communities develop, live, work and relax. With the right tools councils can use licencing to significantly improve the chances of businesses and residents moving to an area whether in the heart of a city or in a more rural district.
Licensing can be controversial and objections to certain types of licenses may come from various groups, members of the public and Local Authorities. Lots of small groups and small councils do not have the resources to employ Lawyers etc to fight an application. Many members of the community look to their local councillor to help and represent them in such cases.
We will look at ways to both support and object to applications to give good outcomes for the community.
