Abstract

The evaluation of the impact of the Licensing Act 2003 on levels of crime and disorder had several strands to it, including information from both national and local sources. A central element was a series of detailed case studies conducted in five areas. Work on the case studies was carried out by various independent researchers and by Home Office researchers, and included the following:

- detailed spatial and temporal analysis of time- and location stamped recorded crime data, mounted by the Applied Criminology Centre (ACC), University of Huddersfield;

- post-implementation qualitative interviews with a limited number of representatives from licensed premises and observation of licensed premises, mounted by the ACC;

- analysis of 'before and after' health service data, mounted by the ACC;

- 'before and after' telephone surveys of residents carried out by the British Market Research Bureau (BMRB);

- 'before and after' in-depth qualitative interviews with licensees and representatives from other night-time economy businesses which were located in the main night time economy areas, carried out by Cragg Ross Dawson;

- 'before and after' in-depth qualitative interviews by researchers from the Home Office with representatives from the responsible authorities designated under the Act, the licensing authority, the Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP), the Drugs and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) and the town centre manager; and

- additional data from police and health authorities assembled by Home Office researchers.
