The council deals with a wide range of licensing issues including entertainment and alcohol; animal welfare; charity collections and taxis.

We deal with licence applications, enforce conditions of existing licences and investigate people or businesses operating without a licence when one is required.

We also carry out  inspections of the premises and vehicles we license to check compliance with the law and we investigate any complaints received regarding licensed or unlicensed persons, premises, vehicles or activities.


For any licensing enquiries please use the contact details on the left. A members of the licensing team will normally be available at the Municipal Buildings on weekdays 9am - noon and 2pm - 5pm (4.30pm on Fridays). We may be available at other times by prior appointment.
