Once the Licensing Unit has received your application, a member of the unit will check the documentation to make sure that the application complies with all the requirements of the Licensing Act 2003 (the Act).

If your application is accepted within a couple of days you will:

  • receive a confirmation letter
  • and a reminder to advertise your application.

If your application is rejected:

  • your application and documentation will be returned
  •  you will get a letter explaining the problems with your application and what action you need to take to rectify the situation.

Any missing documentation or fee payment will result in an application being rejected and returned.
