Current premises licence applications received
Making a Representation
The Licensing Act 2003 allows residents or businesses who may be affected by the operation of the business for which a licence is being applied, to make representations either for or against it.
Local residents and businesses in the vicinity of the premises may make representations, providing they are relevant to any of the licensing objectives which are:
- the prevention of crime and disorder
- public safety
- the prevention of public nuisance
- the protection of children from harm.
Representations must be submitted, in writing, by interested parties within 28 days, beginning the day after the date on which the application was given to the Licensing Authority.
Representations should be sent to:
- The Licensing Officer
- Licensing Unit
Halifax HX1 1UJ.
What happens if relevant representations are made?
If representations are made, the Licensing Authority will arrange a hearing of the application by 3 members of the Licensing and Regulatory Committee sitting as a Sub Committee.
If you would like to discuss your concerns prior to submitting representations, ring the Licensing Team on 01422 393131. Officers may be able to arrange a meeting with the applicant to agree ways to address your concerns, without the need for a hearing.
