How to seek a review of a licence or certificate

Where a Premises Licence or Club Premises Certificate has an effect and it is believed that one or more of the licensing objectives are not being promoted, then there is the ability to request a formal review.

When submitting an application for review it is essential that it is supported by evidence. Following receipt of an application there is a consultation period during which other parties are entitled to submit representations. At the close of this a hearing of the Alcohol & Entertainment Licensing Sub-Committee will be convened at which the matter will be determined.

Please be aware that the name and address of any person who has submitted a request for a review will ordinarily be disclosed to the licence/certificate holder and are a matter of public record.

Whilst it is possible to make an application for review, please do not hesitate to contact the Licensing Team in order to discuss your concerns as we will work with operators of licensed premises to resolve issues informally.
