  3. the prevention of public nuisance, or
  4. the protection of children from harm

Please give the full address of the premises for which the application has been made and say how your comments relate to that premises only. We cannot accept comments about other premises or about the effect of the legislation in general.

You must also give your name and your own postal address.

Representations must be received within 28 days of the application. The advertisement displayed on the premises and in a local newspaper will show the date by which you can make a representation.

If representations are not withdrawn the licensing committee will hold a hearing and a decision will be made whether to approve, add conditions or refuse the application. If you make a representation you will be informed of the time and date of the hearing and how it will be conducted.

Frivolous or vexatious representations cannot be accepted.
