When we receive an application for a licence there will be a consultation period in which objections will be received.
Only registered bodies and interested parties can make comments or objections. An interested party is someone living close to the premises, or a body representing local residents, local businesses, or local associations. Local councillors may also be an interested party.
We make every attempt to resolve any concerns or issues about a licence before it is granted, and to make sure conditions are in place where needed.

We keep a register of current applications which are open to comments. You can find this in the related documents section of this web page.
What is a representation?
A representation is a comment or objection to the application because of concerns about:
- crime and disorder
- public nuisance
- public safety
- keeping children safe from harm.
We won't accept representations which are frivolous, vexatious, or repetition.
