Pending alcohol and entertainment licence applications

Hearings about representations

If representations against an application are made and not withdrawn, we will list the application for consideration at a licensing sub-committee hearing.

We aim to hold a hearing within 20 working days from the last date of representations. 

If you've made representation on an application, we'll invite you to attend the licensing sub-committee hearing. You can speak directly to the hearing committee if you want to.

After the hearing, the committee may:

  • Take no action
  • Reject the application
  • Change, add or remove licence conditions
  • Exclude certain activities from the licence
