Guidance on making a representation

Purpose

The purpose of this guidance is to offer assistance to members of the public wishing to make representations about licensing applications, e.g. applications for new premises licences or applications to vary existing premises licences and club premises certificates made under the Licensing Act 2003. This guidance explains who is entitled to make representations and how such representations should be made. It also explains the process which follows once representations have been received by the Council.

Further details about the Licensing Act can be found on the website for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
