If you are the freeholder, leaseholder or occupier of a property which has a Premises Licence in accordance with the Licensing Act 2003, then you may notify the Licensing Authority of that interest and we will advise you when an application is received in respect of those premises.
Registration is discretionary and not therefore a legal requirement.
A person (which will include a business or company) with a property interest in any premises situated in the Licensing Authority's area may give notice of their interest to the authority using a prescribed form and on payment of a fee.
Those who may take advantage of this arrangement may include:
A Notification of Interest must be made to the Licensing Authority for the area in which the premises is situated.
Applications can be made using the online application form available on this web page, using an application form available from the DCMS website, or using a form available from the Licensing Team (contact details below)
We will acknowledge your notification within 10 working days of receipt.
Yes. This means that you will be able to act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from the Licensing Authority by the end of the target completion period of 60 calendar days.
Applicants should be aware that the timescales for processing an application do not start until all the necessary information has been received in full.
Because the timescales for processing a licence start once the necessary information has been submitted, rather than received, where tacit consent is applicable, it will only apply for applications that are submitted electronically or when the applicant can show proof of delivery from a post office or recognised courier.
For 12 months from the date of your application, we will inform you of any changes to the statutory register which relate to those premises.
This includes all applications for:
The notice will have effect for 12 months, but a new notice can be given every year.
Whilst the notice has effect, if any change relating to the premises concerned has been made to the Licensing Register, the Licensing Authority must notify the person who registered an interest of the matter to which the change relates.
The person will also be notified of their right to request a copy of the information contained in any entry in the register.
In cases relating to Interim Authority Notices, the Licensing Authority will ensure such communications are dealt with promptly.
Alternatively you can download forms from the DCMS website.
