The Government is committed to reducing administrative burdens and giving more flexibility to local authorities to take decisions that reflect the needs of their local community. This IA evaluates the Government‟s commitment to consult on an increase in the number of Temporary Events Notices (TENs) allowed each year and/or introducing a simplified TENs system that licensing authorities (LAs) could set and operate locally. The current TENs system has been challenged by some for being unnecessarily bureaucratic and burdensome for LAs and TENs users and community organisations. A simplified system based on local needs and/or an increase in the number of TENs allowed is expected to contribute to the Government‟s aim to cutting red tape and supporting growth.
