Many sectors in leisure rely on having their licences in good order to trade profitably. During COVID they have often had to change and evolve their opening hours and use outside seating. Getting the appropriate licensing advice is critical to tenant trade, completing leasing deals and curating the right tenant mix in a retail or leisure environment.

The end of the pandemic is creating opportunities but also challenges with some councils relaxing restrictions, some continuing them, neighbours raising more complaints than ever before and big delays in obtaining licences. The evolving sector has seen many licences fail to be maintained damaging let-ability and property values.

Working with Poppleston Allen, a firm of leading licensing solicitors, this session will explore these issues and help bring members up to speed on the latest developments. This session will feature two short presentations followed by a Q&A session answering members’ questions
regarding this vital but often overlooked part of our industry.
