Only representations which relate to the likely effect of the granting of the licensing on one or more of the licensing objectives can be considered.  The four objectives are;-

  • The prevention of crime and disorder
  • Public safety
  • Prevention of public nuisance
  • The protection of children from harm

  Issues which may be raised but which are outside the scope for consideration include:-

  • Matters which are outside the control of the applicant eg on street parking, traffic, general anti social behaviour.
  • Speculation about the effects of the licence being granted
  • Representation which are frivolous or vexacious
  • Matters which duplicate or relate to other legislation eg fire precautions, restrictions on a planning permission
