Edinburgh Licensing Board – consultation on amplified music in licensed premises

The City Council Licensing Board are seeking the views of the public on amplified music in licensed premises.

Edinburgh Licensing Board has agreed to consult on the terms of its current policy on amplified music in licensed premises. The Board was asked to consider amending the policy, as set out in a detailed recommendation from the Edinburgh Licensing Forum.

The terms of the Board’s current policy on amplified music have been the subject of much discussion, including meetings hosted by the City of Edinburgh Council, and particularly its Culture and Sports Committee. That committee agreed to set up a working group called Music is Audible, which made a presentation to the Edinburgh Licensing Forum.

Why We Are Consulting
The Edinburgh Licensing Board sits separately from the Council. The Board is the licensing authority for premises selling alcohol in its geographical area. The Board has to agree a Statement of Licensing Policy which sets out how it will consider applications for licensed premises in its area, and all associated matters.

This consultation has been requested by the Edinburgh Licensing Forum, which has asked the Board to consider a particular amendment to its existing policy, relating to amplified music in licensed premises – i.e. live and recorded music, transmitted through loudspeakers.

Proposal of Application Notice – 9-21 Salamander Place, Leith,

If you didn’t manage to get along to the exhibition on Tuesday, 22 March I’ve attached the information which was supplied by the developer for  you to look at now for the proposed housing project at Salamander Place. This large scale development will take several years to complete and could become the home to approx 2500 new Leithers. Any new development is welcomed but safeguards have to be put in place to guarantee new residents have access to necessary infrastucture like school places and doctors which are currently under pressure.
