What happens next?

If there are no representations from the Police, we will issue an amended licence.

If the Police make representations, the matter will be heard by a licensing sub-committee who will decide whether to grant or refuse the application.

We will notify you, the police and the proposed DPS of the outcome. We will explain how you can appeal if you disagree with the decision.
