The Night Time Economy

Bath city centre is special and one of the things that make it special is the large number of people who choose to live in the heart of the historic city. It is also important for the city that we continue to attract people to visit the historic city both because of the economic benefits they bring but also because of the rich cultural life which they make possible.

Both these groups of people complain that they too often have to suffer the consequences of drink fuelled noise and antisocial behaviour in the city at night especially at weekends. The management of the night time economy is therefore a key issue for anyone who cares about Bath.

We are regularly monitoring the night time in Bath and support residents in making representations to the licencing, planning and environmental protection processes as well as working with local business including managers and proprietors of licenced premises
