How to apply
You'll need to complete an application form and send this to us. You'll need to explain the grounds for a review and give as much information as possible.
The grounds you give for a review must relate to one of the four licensing objectives and must not be frivolous, vexatious or a repetition.
You'll need to send copies of this form and any enclosures to the responsible authorities and the premises licence or club premises certificate holder.

You'll need copies of the completed form and any enclosures to send to each of the responsible authorities and the licence holder.
If an application for a review is accepted then a hearing must be heard before members of the licensing sub committee, unless all parties agree that this is unnecessary. Following a review, a sub- committee may:
- decide that no action is necessary
- modify or add conditions to the licence
- exclude a licensable activity from the licence
- remove the designated premises supervisor (DPS)
- suspend the licence for a period (not exceeding three months)
- revoke the licence
After the hearing we'll write to you with the decision.
