Premises reopening support assessment tool

Nottinghamshire Best Bar None have developed a reopening support tool (external link) to assist licensed premises to assess their reopening processes.

The document will take 5-10 minutes to complete and a report will be produced as soon as responses have been submitted. The information in this report will show the premises areas that they may need to address before they reopen or that they might want to consider in order to make improvements, or in some cases, to become legally compliant.
