Thetford Cumulative Impact Licensing Policy

District Councils are responsible for granting the licenses required by businesses to sell alcohol. Recently councils have been given the power to consider the cumulative impact of licensed premises to restrict the granting of new licences.

Breckland District Council currently does not make use of this power, but the Safer Thetford Action Group is investigating the possibilty, with a view to reducing the harm caused by off-licenses in the town.
