The Licensing Board has a legal duty to publish a licensing policy statement. The current licensing policy statement is in the process of being reviewed and Falkirk Council Licensing Board approved a draft Statement of Policy for the purposes of consultation at it's meeting in September 2018.

Legally, the Board must consult with the Local Licensing Forum, however, the Board is keen to consult as widely as possible as the sale, supply and consumption of alcohol affects many aspects of our community life. The Board will consider very carefully all response received.

The consultation period will run for a period of 6 weeks following which a meeting of the Board will be held to formally adopt the policy.
