Agent of Change Working Group Report Published Date: 30/06/2020

In March 2019, representatives of the Institute of Licensing met with the team at the Drugs and Alcohol Unit at the Home Office to discuss the recommendations of the House of Lords Select Committee after their ten year review of the Licensing Act 2003.

Subsequently, the IoL convened discussion workshops in March and June 2019 to look at the issues surrounding the collaboration between licensing and planning, with a view to identifying potential solutions to the concerns raised by the Select Committee around the lack of collaboration between planning and licensing.  

The workshops were an excellent start to a detailed discussion and a working party was convened to take the findings from the workshops together with other research reports in order to produce a condensed report.

The report from the working party was published in June 2020 and is available to download.
