Southwark Late Night Levy - Another step closer
At a meeting of the Southwark Licensing Committee on Tuesday 25th June, it was resolved to recommend to next month's council assembly meeting that a Late Night Levy be introduced from September this year.
As we have previously reported, Southwark have already consulted upon the proposed terms of the Levy which, if approved by the council assembly, will take effect on 1st September 2019.
Although the initial consultation include consideration of a proposed reduction of 30% to premises within a defined Business Improvement District (BID), this has been dropped from the final proposal.
A meeting of the council assembly is currently scheduled for 17th July, we shall keep you updated.
If you have a premises in Southwark and wish to discuss the terms of the proposed levy and how you may be effected, please give one of our solicitors a call.
