We are conducting a full evaluation of the impact of the Licensing Act 2003 on crime and disorder. This is ongoing and is due to be published towards the end of 2007. A separate monitoring exercise is looking at the impact of the Act on police recorded violent crime and criminal damage. Interim results from this exercise were published in July 2006. They show that there has been no change in the overall volume or timing of offences following the introduction of the Act. No separate arrangements have been made to examine the impact of the Act in Bridgend.
