West Lothian Licensing Board has relaxed its policy on closing times for the Christmas period.
Between Friday, December 13, and Thursday, January 2, 2014, premises with a 2am closing time or later on a Friday and Saturday evening will have a maximum closing time of 4am on Thursdays to Sundays, and 2am from Mondays to Wednesdays. In addition, the closing time of 4am for these premises will apply on December 24, 25 and 31, and on January 1, 2014. No premises will be permitted to open beyond 4am.
The maximum closing time for occasional licenses granted between Friday, December 13, and Thursday, January 2, 2014 will be 2am. Premises with a 1am closing time or earlier will have a maximum closing time of 2am between Friday, December 13, and Thursday, January 2, 2014.
Applications relating to the whole of the festive period can be made on a single application form with a £10 fee required. All extended hours applications and applications for occasional licences must be received by West Lothian Council’s Licensing Team at least 28 days in advance of the dates applied for, and are now being taken.
