Licensing Sub-Committee

Purpose of committee

The Licensing Sub-Committee was established in November 2014 to make decisions on applications falling under the remit of the Council’s Licensing and Regulatory Board, except where the function has been delegated to an officer or, in exceptional circumstances, where the matter has been referred to the full Board for a decision. 


The range of licensing matters falling within the remit of the Sub-Committee include applications for premises licenses for the sale of alcohol, review applications for premises licenses, applications for street trading, night cafes etc. and licenses for sex establishments and betting shops. The three main aspects of legislation relating to the Sub-Committee’s work are the Licensing Act 2003, Section 101 of the Local Government Act 1972 and the Gambling Act 2005. In November 2014, a Licensing Sub-Committee was established to make decisions on application, in line with statutory guidance issued in June 2013 under Section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003.
