Any representations received must relate to one of the four licensing objectives. The council can reject any representations that are vexatious or frivolous.
If representations are received you will be notified of them. If this is the case, the application will have to go to a committee hearing to hear all the facts of the matter and make a decision.
You will be notified of any hearings and given the opportunity to attend in person.
The council will grant a Premises licence unless there is conflict with the four licensing objectives. The council can also impose conditions on a premises licence to promote the licensing objectives.
If you require help when completing the forms, please contact the Licensing Team at East Staffordshire Borough Council for either advice or to arrange an appointment to come and get help in completing the form. Alternatively you may feel that you wish to pass the job of making your application to a reputable licensing professional such as a solicitor or consultant.
