Licensing overview and contact details

Application process

Each licence has separate guidance notes and application forms. Once an application and the appropriate payment (where necessary) has been received by us, the processing begins. There are separate procedures for each different type of licence. Some require applicants, by law, to give us a minimum period of notice prior to a licence being needed, due to the extensive consultations that are sometimes required.

Consultations may need to take place with various organisations, including the police, fire service, DVLA, Disclosure and Barring Service, and HBBC Planning and Environmental Health areas as well as parish councils. By doing this we ensure an applicant's suitability as a fit and proper person to hold a licence as well as checking safety issues and potential public nuisance problems.

If you are in any doubt as to whether you require a licence, do not hesitate to contact us.
