Licensing and permits

Our Customer Service Centre on Southfield Road is now open for essential enquiries by appointment only. Please be aware that it is mandatory for face coverings to be worn on the premises. More information, including how to make an appointment, can be found in this news story.

There are a number of licensing schemes that may affect businesses and residents. Some businesses will need to have licences under more than one scheme - for example, a pub might need a licence for alcohol and entertainment and a separate permit to operate gaming machines.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

In light of recent government advice about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we have had to make some changes to the Licensing Service, and some of these may affect you and your business.

These changes have been made to help minimise the risk and spread of the virus, and to keep our staff and our customers safe.

Contingency plans are in place to deal with any urgent applications and we will continually review this situation and re-open any suspended service as soon as we can.
