Under the new Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 each Council must establish a Local Licensing Forum for their area. Aberdeenshire is divided into three licensing divisions, and, instead of establishing one Local Licensing Forum for the area, the Council established three separate Forums for each licensing division; North, Central and South Aberdeenshire.
The Law and Administration Service is responsible for licensing across Aberdeenshire.
The licensing of pubs, hotels, restaurants etc. as well as bookmakers and betting offices is administered in three geographic divisions:
- North (sitting in Peterhead) covers the Banff & Buchan and Buchan Areas and, in the Formartine Area, the Fyvie-Methlick, Turriff East, Turriff West and Upper Ythan wards
- Central (sitting in Inverurie) covers the remainder of the Formartine and the Garioch Area and, in the Marr Area, the Huntly East and West wards
- South (sitting in Stonehaven) covers the remainder of the Marr Area and the Kincardine & Mearns Area
