Issue details

Cumulative Impact Assessment (CIA) Area Review: Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket

CIA areas are a licensing tool which encourages applicants who are applying for a new premises license or longer licensing hours in a designated area, to address how they will ensure it does not lead to increased issues of anti-social behaviour, crime and impact on public health.  New regulations that came into force under Section 141 of the Policing and Crime Act, mean that any further renewal of the CIAs in Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket, must be justified by evidence of its effectiveness. The Cabinet will be asked to consider the outcomes of the review and consultation on this matter. The review must be completed by the end of 2023 and without strong evidence to renew, the CIAs will expire.
