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.
