The alcohol and gambling licensing solicitors Poppleston Allen have launched the 2021 edition of the Licensed Trade Guide (LTG) available to download free of charge from today (22 November).

The 152-page guide gives operators a comprehensive overview of common legal issues they could face in 2021 and beyond, including applications for personal licences, premises licenses and summary reviews.

Managing partner at Poppleston Lisa Sharkey said: “This year, for the first time since it was first published more than 10 years ago, the Licensed Trade Guide is available free of charge and in digital format, which we hope will further broaden access to what has become a valuable tool for operators, police and authorities alike”.

Updated information

The LTG highlights the areas where legal difficulty is frequent, and also contains a legal glossary plus five practical employment law scenarios and answers.

Written by the firm’s alcohol and gambling solicitors, the 2021 edition contains new explanations for the relaxation of off-sales due to the Planning Act 2020 and updated guidance on prepacked food labels under Natasha’s Law.

Furthermore, the guide looks at the legalities of employment, and also considers what the Alcohol Licensing (Coronavirus) (Regulatory Easements) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 will mean for temporary event notices in the years 2022 and 2023.

The guide also contains updated information on the impact of the Gambling Act 2005 on practice and procedure.

Legal advice

The LTG 2021 edition is the fourth version Poppleston has produced in the last eight years.

As well as having new overviews, the LTG 2021 contains the same information as prior versions, including legal advice on noise, crime on licensed premises and health and safety concerns.

In the guide, you can also find phone numbers to contact for answers to any more legal questions and for an emergency licensing service.
