The Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 introduced a uniform code of law and procedure to regulate the issuing of licences by Scottish local authorities for various activities, including taxis and private hire cars, public entertainments, scrap merchants and second-hand dealers, street traders and markets, knife dealers, tattooing, sex shops and window cleaners and also the legislation dealing with cinema licences and a range of animal licences from boarding establishments to zoos.

Fully revised and updated from the previous edition, Scottish Civic Government Licensing Law, 4th Edition is an invaluable guide to this area of licensing law, providing insight on the complex legislation and keeping you up-to date with the latest developments and changes which will affect your clients and their businesses.

This book provides a detailed narrative introduction, offering expert comment on areas such as appeals, judicial review, enforcement, defences and penalties. A full copy of the consolidated Act is included, along with practical section-by-section annotated commentary to guide you through the law.
