Alcohol and entertainment licences
How long will my application take?
All applications have to go through a 28 day consultation period. Responsible authorities (such as Environmental Health and the Police) and other parties (eg local residents, councillors) can submit a representation objecting to, or in support of, the application.
If we haven't received any representations, we can issue your licence.
If we receive representations, we will refer your application to a Licensing Sub-Committee which will decide whether to approve your application. A meeting will be held within 20 working days of the closing date for representations. You will be invited to attend this meeting.
