Licensing forum

Licensing forum

The Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 provides for the creation of local licensing forums in every local authority area. The licensing board must meet with the relevant licensing forum at least once a year and the forum must meet four times a year. The aim of the forum is to promote the understanding of local issues in relation to the operation of the Act.

The purpose of the forum is to:

  • review the operation of the Act in the forum’s area and the exercise of the relevant board of their functions
  • give advice and make recommendations to the relevant board

Forum members include the Chief Constable, premises and personal licence holders, residents, and young people drawn from the local area.

Stirling Council needs more local people from rural areas to become involved in the Stirling local licensing forum.
