This page is updated weekly. Applications are removed after the closing date for representations. If a hearing was necessary because representations were received then the hearing will be heard by a Licensing Sub Committee, and all those who made valid representations will be invited to attend the hearing.

Please note:
On the closing date for representations, any representations received by the Licensing Unit after our office has closed to the public will not be accepted as valid representations. If you make a valid representation, your name and address will be made public as part of the record of hearing, should a hearing be necessary.

How to make a representation

If you wish to make a representation, this must be done in writing by either letter or email:

Representations must be made by the closing date for representation.

If you are making a representation, you must refer to the possible impact of the application on one or more of the licensing objectives. Any representation made after the representation date cannot be considered.

Licensing objectives

The licensing objectives are:

  • prevention of crime and disorder
  • prevention of public nuisance
  • public safety
  • protection of children from harm

If you are considering making a representation, please read the current guidance issued under section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003.

Please be aware that in accordance with the Licensing Act 2003:

  • only representations that refer to the likely impact of the application on one or more of the licensing objectives will be accepted as relevant, and you are recommended to give evidence to support any representation
  • if we receive a relevant representation, the application will be determined by a Licensing Sub-Committee and all parties will be invited to attend the hearing unless the application is a Minor Variation, in which case it will be determined by a licensing officer
  • at the hearing, the Licensing Sub-Committee must look to grant the application. It will only refuse an application as a last resort and if there are no appropriate conditions or modifications to the application that would address the concerns raised in a relevant representation
  • should the future or current operation of a premises be undermining the licensing objectives, any person can call for a review of the licence/certificate, and where there is no evidence to support a representation, it would be better to wait and see what impact the grant of the application has, and if necessary, call a review of the licence/certificate.
