Leeds City Council, GB designs alcohol licensing data matrix for postcode-level licensing decisions

Leeds City Council, GB Alcohol Licensing Data Matrix


City officials identified data limitations in curbing anti-social behavior and health issues related to alcohol consumption. The licensing and public health units collaborated on an easy-to-use matrix for licensing decisions. Seventeen data sets covering areas like deprivation, alcohol-related hospital admissions, and looked-after children offer fuller pictures than crime statistics. Licensing committee members rely on the matrix when deciding on off-premises alcohol licenses.

Within Leeds, there are some areas which have high levels of alcohol-related harm and alcohol-related anti-social behaviour (ASB). This data led to Leeds’ licensing and public health teams working together to develop an alcohol licensing data matrix.
