Remote licensing hearings: what you need to know

In this in-depth webinar, licensing experts at Cornerstone Barristers discuss how authorities are questioning how the existing licensing hearing regulations work alongside new remote meetings regulations.

Cornerstone's speakers; James Findlay QC, Josef Cannon, Ruchi Parekh, Matt Lewin and Ben Du Feu covered the following areas:

  • The interaction between the Licensing Act 2003 (Hearings) Regulations 2005 and the Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020
  • Giving notice of applications and reviews
  • Enabling members of the public to attend the hearing
  • Dealing with the submission of "late" evidence
  • Allowing questions by members and cross-examination by other parties
  • Providing confidential legal advice to members, excluding the public and deliberations in private
  • Making urgent decisions and delegations to officers
  • Choosing the right platform for hosting the hearing – and keeping it secure
  • Adopting new rules for making licensing decisions – including rules of procedure
  • Appeals during the lockdown

For now, although many thousands of licensed premises are closed and a summer's worth of outdoor events have had to be postponed, the licensing system must continue to function.

Among other things, taxis are providing an essential public service and takeaways and off-licences are experiencing surges in demand.
