Guidance issued under Section 182 to the Licensing Act 2003. Paragraph 11.11 for assistance states:
"It is important to recognise that the promotion of the licensing objectives relies heavily on a partnership between licence holders, authorised persons, responsible authorities and any other persons in pursuit of common aims. Where authorised persons and responsible authorities have concerns about problems identified at premises, it is good practice for them to give licence holder’s early warning of their concerns and the need for improvement and where possible they should advise the licence holder of the steps they need to take to address those concerns. A failure by the holder to respond to such warnings is expected to lead to a decision to apply for a review. Co-operation at a local level in promoting the licensing objectives should be encouraged and reviews should not be used to undermine this co-operation".
It is an offence knowingly or recklessly to make a false statement in connection with an application and the maximum fine for which a person is liable on summary conviction for the offence is £5,000.
The details of the grounds for review may be inspected at the Licensing Offices between the hours of 8.00 am and 4.00pm (Monday to Friday except Public Holidays).
The full notice for each Review is available at the foot of this page.
