In addition, the Forum is required to provide such advice and make such representations to the Licensing Board in relation to those matters as the Forum considers appropriate

Renfrewshire Council has agreed that the licensing forum for the Renfrewshire area will have 12 members consisting of the following:

  • 1 x Licensing Standards Officer
  • 1 x Police Scotland representative
  • 1 x Young Person representative
  • 3 x Licensed Trade representatives
  • 2 x Health Board representatives (including Alcohol & Drug Partnership)

  • 3 x Local Resident representatives

There are currently three vacancies for Licensed Trade representatives.
