We will consider the application before issuing, renewing, modifying or transferring a licence.
We may have to conduct site visits and require the production of other documentation to ensure that statutory requirements are being met.
Once we have received your application together with the correct fee and we are satisfied that the premises meets statutory requirements, we will agree to issue, renew or modify the licence.
It is likely to take 4 weeks to process any application received, so please allow enough time when applying for a new licence.
If I do not hear from you for 28 days, can I assume it has been granted ("tacit consent")?
No, tacit consent will not apply. This is because it is in the public interest that we process your application before it can be granted.
If you have not heard from us within a reasonable period, please contact the health and safety duty officer.
