Licensing and licence fees in Havering

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.

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.
