Well Tollcross Community Council of which I am chair had a deputation at the Governance Risk and Best Value Committee (GRBV) today 20/2/18. You can watch the webcast here.
Our Community Councillor for Licensing Roger Colkett spelt out the confusion of the current system with the Licensing Forum. The Councillors tried to make sense of it all and couldn’t so the only sensible solution is to go forward with a full review of the forum, its membership, appointments procedures etc.
Just what we wanted so that the appointment, membership and rules are all out in the public, clear and above board and not done behind closed doors as is currently the case.
Its nice to have a small win from time to time!
