Members received an outline scope and project plan for its review of Licensing and Public Health. Members also received a presentation relating to Licensing and Public Health opportunities. The presentation provided the Committee with information that included:

- Public Health priorities
- the impact alcohol had in Stockton
- how alcohol related harm could be reduced, for example through
influencing its affordability and availability, limiting alcohol
promotion, licensing control/regulation.
- recommendations coming from and All Party Parliamentary Group on
Alcohol Misuse. Including one recommendation that Public health be
introduced as a licensing objective.
- incidence of obesity in Stockton
- work undertaken in other parts of the UK.
- opportunities for interventions around trading standards,
licensing and planning.

Members discussed the scope, project plan and the presentation

It was noted that the Committee could undertake the review in phases if it wished and could look at alcohol in one phase and obesity in another.

Members felt that nudge theory was a useful method of changing behaviour and attitudes and should be considered during the review.

The Committee asked that the Project Plan be amended so that best practice/ case studies would come to the next scheduled meeting and Licensing and Planning Committee powers would be presented to a later meeting.

Members briefly discussed wider obesity issues and recognised that some of those issues had been considered as part of previous scrutiny. It was agreed that it would be important to focus on the specific scope of this review in order to ensure it was effective.
