How to apply

Will tacit consent apply?

Yes. This means that if you have not heard from us by the end of the target completion period of 56 calendar days (for new or variation applications) you will be able to act as though your application is granted.

Tacit approval does not apply for an application for a minor variation to a premises or club licence.


Appeals should be made to a magistrates court within 21 days of notice of the decision.
