Liverpool council to consult on late-night levy next month
Liverpool City Council has said it will launch a consultation on the possible introduction of late-night levy in January.

The authority announced its intentions to consult back in July, with the initial timeframe of October suggested. However, it has now confirmed that a consultation will be carried out between 12 January and 10 April.

Last week the London Borough of Camden said it would consider the introduction of a levy, with the proposal to go before its Licensing Committee on 4 February.

Earlier this month, Tameside Metropolitan rejected proposals for a late-night levy, due to the current economic climate and businesses' financial difficulties.

UPDATE:

A Licensing Committee meeting held on 17 December agreed that the consultation on the introduction of a late-night levy will be postponed until further notice.
The council said it would review the impact of Newcastle's late-night levy - introduced last year - to see if it is viable to Liverpool.
