Nottinghamshire Police Authority is keen to see a late-night levy introduced on licensed premises in Nottingham, claiming too many crimes involving alcohol take place in the city during the early hours.

The legislation introducing the late-night levy is set to come in alongside early morning restriction orders (EMROs) on 31 October as part of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act.

The levy is an annual fee which will be collected from all premises in a certain area which are authorised to sell alcohol between the hours of midnight and 6am.

Local councils will be able to implement the levy from June next year at the earliest, according to the Home Office, and they will have discretion over what hours between midnight and 6am it will apply.
