Council separately processes all applications, and our licensing inspectors together with the Police and Medical Officer of Health report to the District Licensing Committee on each application. Once the committee grants an application, we then issue the licence. Our licensing inspectors and partner enforcement agencies undertake inspection of licensed premises to ensure that the sale of alcohol is properly conducted. 

Under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 new criteria will be applied from 18 December 2013. Information will be added to this page about changes to comply with the Act as they are confirmed.
