As well as responsible authorities, any other person can play a role in a number of licensing processes under the 2003 Act. This includes any individual, body or business entitled to make representations to licensing authorities in relation to applications for the grant, variation, minor variation or review of premises licences and club premises certificates, regardless of their geographic proximity to the premises. In addition, these persons may themselves seek a review of a premises licence. Any representations made by these persons must be 'relevant'.
Comments may be positive or negative, but will only be considered 'relevant' by the council if they relate clearly to the licensing objectives. Councils will also reject comments considered to be 'frivolous' (not serious or time-wasting) or if they relate to personal disputes between businesses.
Requesting a review of a licence
You can also call for an existing licence to be reviewed by the council if you have concerns relating to the licensing objectives.
If the council considers your reasons for making representations or calling for a review are relevant, it will arrange a hearing to consider the evidence. You - or someone representing you - will be invited to the hearing to explain your concerns.
Representations and requests for the review of a licence must be made in writing. If you disagree with the council's decision following a hearing, you have the right to appeal to the magistrates' court.
