Licence reviews

A licence review can be sought where a premises is causing nuisance and there is evidence that the problems are related to the licensing objectives.

The person or body asking for the review must tell the holder of the premises licence and each responsible authority of their request.  This should be done by sending them a copy of the application for review, together with any accompanying documents, on the same day as the application is given to the relevant licensing authority.

The licensing authority must advertise the application for the review and invite representations from responsible authorities and interested parties. An interested party or a responsible authority has a period of 28 days in which to make representations to the relevant licensing authority.

The licensing authority can reject any ground for a review if it considers it to be frivolous, vexatious or a repetition. If not rejected, the licensing authority must hold a hearing to consider the application.
