Licensing Act 2003 Public Register

Licensing Act 2003 Public Register

This information is provided as part of the Council's statutory requirement to maintain a public register.

This information is provided as part of the Council's statutory requirement to maintain a public register for Premises Licences, Personal Licences and Temporary Event Notices under the Licensing Act 2003. They can be viewed in the Documents section to the right of this article. The applications, licences and supporting documentation will be available to view, by appointment, at the Council Offices, Foster Avenue, Beeston, Nottinghamshire NG2 1AB. Copies of the application or licences are available at a cost of £10.00.


A key feature of the new licensing regime is to allow local communities a say in licensing decisions that affect them, as well as ensuring that professionals such as the police, fire authorities, trading standards and environmental health officers are able to scrutinise applications and take action if problems occur.

The 2003 Act allows the views of local people and businesses to be taken into account when someone applies for a licence or certificate to carry out a licensable activity such as selling alcohol, providing regulated entertainment and providing late night refreshment.

Interested parties have a number of rights under the Act.  If they think granting a new, or changing an existing licence or certificate would undermine any of the licensing objectives, they can make representations to the relevant licensing authority. They can also ask the licensing authority to review a licence or certificate if problems occur which undermine the licensing objectives.  The licensing objectives are:

  • The prevention of crime and disorder

  • Public safety

  • The prevention of public nuisance

  • The protection of children from harm

Please see the  documents link for advice and guidance on making representations.

Please note: Only Nottinghamshire Police are able to make representation regarding Personal Licences.
