  • enforcement officers will visit the outside of your premises to confirm that the notice is displayed on the premises correctly
  • weekly emails are sent to the responsible authorities to ensure their comments are provided
  • licensing staff will speak to any members of the public who have any queries in relation to your application - they may be interested in viewing your application or wish to discuss objecting to your application.
