Changes in the Law

A number of changes to the law came into force on 25 April. The changes are introduced by the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011. Three of the provisions in particular may be of interest to residents – changes to Temporary Event Notices (TENs), the abolition of the ‘vicinity’ requirement and the term ‘interested party’, and the lowering of the evidential burden on licensing authorities exercising their discretion at licensing hearings.
