If you’re interested in alcohol licensing and how the District Licensing Committees (DLCs) make decisions, there are a number of ways you can find out more or have input.
Alcohol licence applicants must let the public know they intend to sell alcohol at their business.
To object to an alcohol licence application, you must be in a position of 'greater interest' than the general public.
A District Licensing Committee hearing is a legal process similar to a court hearing.
Licensed premises must serve alcohol responsibly at all times and to follow good host responsibility practices.
