CAMRA comments on Redbridge Council’s decision to consult on the introduction of a late-night levy.

CAMRA Regional Director Geoff Strawbridge said:

“It is disheartening to see councils still considering the use of Late Night Levies to generate income for the local area. These levies are a blunt force tax that unfairly penalises community pubs, adding yet another financial burden to licensees’ bottom lines.

“Community pubs should be encouraged to thrive and not be hit with further costs. The imposition of a levy could mean valued neighbourhood pubs closing earlier, or possibly closing down.”
