The Night Time Levy 2013 - This consultation has now ended

Newcastle has a reputation for a great night life, both for local people and visitors to the city. Most people enjoy a safe night out, but as with any city with a lively night time economy there is a need to reduce levels of crime and disorder.
That is why Newcastle City Council wants to introduce a Night Time Levy. This is where places that sell alcohol after midnight are charged extra money to pay towards the cost of policing. We think all licensed premises (for example pubs, bars, clubs, restaurants and hotels) that are licensed to sell alcohol between midnight and 6am should be charged.
As well as for paying for policing we think this money should be used to pay for some of the council’s services, for example checking licensed premises operate legally, cleaning the streets of the rubbish people drop on a night out and CCTV.  
We believe this is a fair way to make sure our city remains safe. It will benefit local residents and businesses and make sure our city remains attractive to tourists.
We now want to know what you think and you have until 30 April 2013 to tell us your views. Full council will then make a final decision about this proposal, taking into account what you have told us.
