Combined Scheme of Delegation
The Boards have combined their previous Schemes of Delegation into one combined document covering the three licensing Boards. The purpose of this document is to set out those matters that can only be dealt with by the Licensing Boards, the matters which can be considered by the Clerk following consultation with the Board Convenor, and the matters which can be dealt with by Officers. The combined Scheme of Delegation is effective from 28th June 2017.
