Licensing SAVI

Chorley Council is working in partnership with Lancashire Police and our licensed premises to introduce the Licensing and Security Initiative (Licensing SAVI) in Chorley. 

The Licensing Security and Vulnerability Initiative (Licensing SAVI) is a crime prevention scheme developed by Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (Police CPI) in partnership with the Home Office, which works to improve the safety and the feeling of safety in the Nighttime economy. It aims to support the licensing trade and promote the more responsibly run Licensed Premises.

Licensing SAVI encourages venues to look more closely at their safety and security policies and procedures, providing definitive information on effective management practices and operational security, including many safety measures that can be introduced quickly and at little or no cost and some that licensed premises may not have considered before.

Prior to Licensing SAVI, the information provided to licensees may have been subject to regional variations and different nuances and interpretations. What Licensing SAVI provides is the most comprehensive, single source of consistent information to meet the requirements of the 'Responsible Authorities' including Police and Council Licensing Teams.

The Licensing SAVI online assessment platform is simple to use, and the questions provide consistent standards, guidance and advice that licensed premises in England and Wales need to meet the requirements of the Licensing Act 2003 and promote the four Licensing Objectives - Prevention of Public Nuisance, Prevention of Crime and Disorder, Protection of Children from Harm, and Public Safety.

Being constantly updated to include the latest licensing legislation, changing patterns of criminal behaviour and industry best practices, it should be a key process in the running of a venue whether it's a start-up business, established operator, single independent business or part of a large chain of venues.
