How to object to or support an application
In order for you to be able to support or object to an application for a premises licence you must live, work or represent a body that is in the vicinity of the premises.
Comments of support or objection must relate to the four licensing objectives, which are:
- to prevent crime and disorder
- public safety
- to prevent public nuisance
- to protect children from harm.
An application for the grant or variation of a premises licence will be notified to residents by displaying it on the premises and in the local press. Comments in support or objections must be made within 28 days of the date given in the public notice.
If you have made valid comments of support or objection you will be expected to attend a meeting of the authority’s licensing subcommittee and any subsequent appeal proceeding. If you do not attend, the subcommittee will still consider your comments, but they may not carry the same weight as if you had attended if, for example, the contents are disputed or challenged.
Your comments of support or objection will be passed to the applicant to allow them the opportunity to address your concerns in line with the Licensing Act 2003. Your comments will also be published in the report to the licensing sub-committee, which is publicly available and displayed on the committee meetings section on this website. Details of the subcommittee's decision following a hearing will also be made available on the website via this link.
If you would like to make a representation, please do so in writing using the form below. Either version of the form can be completed electronically and emailed to us as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
The council reserves the right not to publish or take into account any letters of representation which we believe are defamatory, offensive or racist.
