Entertainment and alcohol licensing representations

The Licensing Act 2003 is governed by four licensing objectives which are:

  • the prevention of crime and disorder
  • public safety
  • the prevention of public nuisance
  • the protection of children from harm

If you believe that granting a licence or variation of a licence is likely to affect one or more of these objectives, you may, as an “interested party,” make a representation to the licensing department.

An interested party can be any one of the following:

  • a person living in the vicinity of the premises
  • a body (MP, solicitor, Councillor etc) representing persons who live in that vicinity
  • a person involved in a business in the vicinity of the premises
  • a body representing persons involved in these businesses

A representation must be submitted by email, or by writing to the following address:

Public Protection Manager - Licensing
