Information about Licensing

There are eleven Councillors who sit on the Licensing Committee.  The Committee as a whole meets approximately three times a year. 


The primary role of the Licensing Committee is to provide a pool of Councillors to sit on Sub-Committees that consider licensing applications and conduct hearings relating to taxi licensing and related matters.  The Licensing Sub-Committees for matters within the scope of the Licensing Act 2003 and Gambling Act 2005 (i.e. premises licenses, personal licenses, reviews of existing licenses and so forth) are established on an ad hoc basis and comprise three Councillors. The Licensing Sub-Committee (Taxis) comprises five Councillors and meets monthly and generally in private owing to the personal nature of the majority of the business being transacted.


Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings of the Licensing Committee and Sub-Committees in relation to the Licensing Act and Gambling Act.   If you would like further information on licensing matters please contact the Council’s Licensing Team on 01527 534100 or by emailing
