Consultation - The Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2015

Holyrood

The Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2015

Consultation on guidance on the provisions for licensing of sexual entertainment venues and changes to licensing of theatres.

"While the draft guidance includes some material on the repeal of the existing mandatory licensing regime for theatrical performances under section 12 of the Theatre Act 1968, the prime intention of the guidance is to assist local authorities in taking forward work in relation to licensing SEV and to help ensure that such activities take place in safe and regulated environments. It is a technical document to support the operation of the new licensing regime seeking to explain the legislation in layman’s terms."

Closes 7 February 2018
