Committee details

Licensing Committee

Purpose of committee

The Licensing Committee is responsible for the Council’s Licensing Authority functions as required by law and has a consultatory role in the formulation of licensing policy.  It also on occasion will carry out film classification functions where licensing premises wish to show films which are not classified by the British Board of Film Classification. 


The Committee establishes Licensing Panels to determine individual applications for licences in cases where objections have been received and when licences need to be reviewed.
