Impact case study – Influencing alcohol policy across England

In England councils decide how alcohol policy will be implemented in their local areas, which provides councils with the opportunity to tailor its approach to suit local needs. As a result, this has led to variations in how alcohol policy is put in to practice across the country. The NIIHR School for Public Health Research has funded the first piece of research to explore the impact of alcohol policies in local areas across the country on public health. The aim of the research was to assess if there was a link between a council’s approach to alcohol licensing and its impact on the community.
