List of licences

We are responsible for issuing a wide range of licences, permits and registrations related to premises, various occupations and activities such as street trading.

The majority of these are administered and enforced by the Licensing Team.

Licences are issued for many reasons but usually they are intended to protect the public and to maintain appropriate standards of public safety, animal welfare and to prevent nuisance.

Licensing guidelines 

We follow strict guidelines before issuing licences, permits or registrations and can impose a range of conditions.

The teams regularly inspect premises to ensure that all the conditions attached to the licence or registration are being met and complaints, including those concerning premises operating illegally without a licence, are investigated.

Fair processing 

This authority is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers, and to this end may use the information you have provided on application forms for the prevention and detection of fraud.

It may also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds for these purposes.
