Premises licences - Reviews and issues with licensed premises

A review is the process for re-visiting a licence that has already been issued. It allows a responsible authority or other person such as a local resident to make an application to the Licensing Authority for a review of a premises licence or club premises certificate because of issues arising at the premises in connection with any of the four licensing objectives that are:

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

A hearing will be held where the licence holder and other interested parties may make representations.

The police can also object to a transfer of the licence if they believe that the transfer could make crime prevention more difficult. This notice must be given within 14 days of receiving notification of the application.

Anyone who made representations may appeal if we grant a licence or against any condition, variation, activity or premises supervisor decisions.
