Fylde Council is considering managing the number, type and density of licensed premises within an area of Lytham Town Centre – namely between Beach Street, Westby Street, Station Road and Lytham Green. The Council has launched a consultation (link below) and say that feedback will be analysed before a decision is reached in early 2024.
This has come about following Fylde Council receiving a request from members of the public to undertake a Cumulative Impact Assessment (CIA) for this stated area of Lytham. The introduction of such an assessment could potentially assist in managing the number, type and density of licensed premises within the area.
Licensed premises include places which sell alcohol, provide late-night hot food or hot drinks (between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.), or where a range of sporting, music or performance events take place. You can find out more about licensed premises on the Fylde Council website here https://new.fylde.gov.uk/business/licensing/licensing-act-2003/
Following this request, the Licensing Committee wishes to consult on whether to introduce a Cumulative Impact Area (CIA) in Lytham. You can tell the Council if you consider that a CIA should be introduced here: https://forms.office.com/pages/responsepage.aspx?id=5QJ9_HG9WU6G9o11mEvkqcImvKmEoXVMt66oagrSW59URjRHVTM0MEhOUjg1Q1ozWEY5NjkwVE9PSi4u
Responses should be submitted by 14th January 2024. You can request a paper version or alternative formats of this survey by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01253 658658.
The Council say that all responses to this consultation will be analysed and the feedback will help develop proposals for a CIA in Lytham. Depending on the evidence received, the Council can propose to introduce a CIA. It is expected that the Licensing Committee will decide on the proposal during early 2024. The Licensing Committee will take responses to the consultation into consideration when making their decision.
