Consultation on liquor licensing laws in Northern Ireland


Department for Communities

Catalogue: Policy
Type: Policy
Region: Northern Ireland

Consultation opened on 14 October 2019. Closing date 06 December 2019 at 17:00.

The Department for Communities is seeking views on current liquor licensing laws, their impact, if any, and what changes could be considered in the future.

This consultation paper has been drafted to invite public opinion on current liquor licensing laws in Northern Ireland, and to seek views on whether changes could be made in the future to ensure Northern Ireland has a more flexible and modern licensing framework to respond to changing expectations and lifestyles.  

It should be noted that any changes to licensing law must also be balanced with the need for regulation in the public interest. We are keen to hear the views of all parties with an interest in licensing law, so that relevant views and evidence can be taken into account in any future policy decisions.
