Combined Scheme of Delegation

The Boards have combined their previous Schemes of Delegation into one combined document covering the three licensing Boards. The purpose of this document is to set out those matters that can only be dealt with by the Licensing Boards, the matters which can be considered by the Clerk following consultation with the Board Convenor, and the matters which can be dealt with by Officers. The combined Scheme of Delegation is effective from 28th June 2017.

Annual functions and finance report

Following Section 9A of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 each licensing board must prepare and publish an annual functions report. This must be published within 3 months after the end of each financial year. The report includes:

  • a statement explaining how the board has had regard to the licensing objectives and its licensing policy statement (including any supplementary licensing policy statements) in the exercise of their functions during the financial year
  • a summary of the decisions made by or on behalf of the board during that financial year, as well as information about the number of licences held and issued under the act in the board’s area

Section 9B of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 states that each licensing board must prepare and publish an annual financial report. The report shows the amount of relevant income received by the board during the financial year and the amount of relevant expenditure incurred in respect of the board’s area during that year.

The boards have now combined their annual finance report with the annual functions report. View the Aberdeenshire Licensing Boards annual functions and finance report 2018/19 (pdf 1.92MB) and the previous Aberdeenshire Licensing Boards annual functions and finance report 2017/18 (pdf 1.17MB).
