The main responsibility of the Licensing Panel is to consider and decide upon licensing applications under the Licensing Act 2003 where objections have been raised. This relates to premises selling alcohol for consumption either on or off the premises. The licence may also cover music, dancing or other forms of entertainment. The Panel would also consider some other types of licence application where there are objections or where Officers recommend refusal of the application.
The Panel consists of three Councillors who are drawn from the membership of the Licensing Committee. A councillor cannot sit on the Panel if the premises are in his/her own Ward. The full procedure for the Panel is published with the agenda for each meeting on the website as is the Licensing Policy.
