SCOTTISH BORDERS LICENSING BOARD
Scottish Borders Licensing Board will be reassessing its Alcohol Licensing Policy Statement over the next few months.
This policy will apply for five years and a new survey offers a chance for communities to influence the development of this policy.
The public’s experience and opinions about the impact of alcohol on their community – and their own lives – is highly influential. Scottish Borders Local Licensing Forum has a role in identifying any key licensing issues and providing advice to the Licensing Board.
The Local Licensing Forum want to capture Borderers’ views by inviting you to complete a brief survey by Sunday, July 16 2023. The responses are confidential, and your identities will be unknown unless you give explicit permission at the end of the survey.

Audrey came highly recommended from a friend with a similar business and he was entirely correct, she knows the industry inside out. From her initial phone call to communication throughout the process, I was kept fully updated on all aspects of liquor licence application start to finish. I'd recommend Audrey to anyone looking for her professional advice.
We approached Miller Samuel Hill Brown through recommendation and after initially struggling to advance licencing applications with our local authority ourselves. From the outset, they gave us the confidence that we were in safe hands and kept us informed at all stages of our applications. We were particularly impressed with the time taken to understand our business and the people within it, making their representations to the licencing board genuine and effective.
I couldn’t recommend any other solicitors like this. Miller Samuel Hill Brown are an amazing company to deal with from start to finish. First class service and straight on the case. Everyone I have dealt with within the business has been friendly, efficient and professional. Advice is always presented in a user-friendly format and they take their time to ensure that you have digested everything. 5 stars from me!
