After the successes of Best Bar None nationally Chelmsford adopted the scheme in 2016 and have found accreditation to have many positive effects than just promoting the licensing objectives. On the strength of accreditation one venue is opening another bar and the feedback from our first award evening in January 2017 was that ‘it has brought the whole of our community much closer together with common objectives’. Chelmsford City is pleased to be a part of this rapidly growing family

Our mission statement is……

To reduce alcohol related crime and antisocial behaviour. To increase business, through the delivery of training, education and promotion of best practice, and to create a partnership between the local authority, the police, the trade and the private sector to broaden the appeal of an area more especially it’s evening and nighttime economy.
