How we spend the money
Firstly, we deduct our administrative expenses in connection with the levy.
Then we have to split the net amount of levy between the council and Islington police. We must give at least 70% to the police but we can give up to 100%.
We have agreed with the Mayor's Police and Crime Commissioner that the proceeds of the levy will be used in Islington and that we will work together with the Metropolitan Police to devise a joint scheme for the use of the proceeds.
We have established a Late-Night Levy Board to supervise the use of the proceeds which involves representatives of the licensing trade as well as the Islington Police, councillors and the Mayor's Police and Crime Commissioner.
