Late night levy

Southampton Late Night Levy ended on 31 March 2021

Southampton City Council introduced the late night levy as detailed below in 2015. After consultation the matter was brought back before the council on 18 November 2020 when members unanimously voted to end the levy. The levy therefore ceased as of 1 April 2021. This was the earliest date it could be stopped. Despite the restriction placed on the hospitality trade through 2020, the late night levy still had to be charged by the authority.
