Harrogate Borough Council's blog

On Wednesday 21st June officers from the Licensing Teams of both Harrogate Borough Council and North Yorkshire Police, as well as the local Compliance Manager from the Gambling Commission, undertook a number of visits to licensed premises in the district in support of the Institute of Licensing’s National Licensing Week.  The purpose of the visits was not only to ensure compliance but also to provide advice/guidance to the trade and provide public reassurance by demonstrating the closer partnership working which underpins the good work that is undertaken in the area.

The Licensing Teams at both Harrogate Borough Council and North Yorkshire Police work very closely with licensed establishments to ensure clear transparent relations. We endeavour to be approachable for any questions or enquires, we aim to be here to help licensees. Not just to enforce, but to guide and establish a clear understanding of licensing visits and regulations. Our officers are regularly out visiting and working within our borough to be proactive and assist all establishments in the area.
