Committee details

Licensing Committee

Purpose of committee

The Licensing Committee acts as Licensing authority for duties under the Licensing Act 2003 and Gambling Act 2005 and is responsible for all other licensing functions. In May 2021 the Licensing Committee and the Licensing (Regulatory) Committee merged to form a single Licensing Committee to cover the former remit of both bodies.


Meetings of the Licensing Committee are open to the public except where exempt information is being discussed. We endeavour to livestream public meetings to the council’s YouTube channel. Videos will then remain available for six months after the meeting, although the council reserves the right to remove a video if it deems it necessary.


If attending a meeting, you may be visible on the livestream and video. If you do not wish to be visible on camera, please speak to Democratic Services on arrival.
