Once an application for grant or variation is received the Council will consult the relevant Responsible Authorities which are West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service, West Yorkshire Police, Bradford Council Planning Services, Bradford Council Safeguarding Children Board, Bradford Council Environmental Services, West Yorkshire Trading Standards, Public Health, Immigration Enforcement and Health & Safety Executive.

Any of these Authorities are entitled to make representations about the application, providing they are relevant to any of the four licensing objectives. Other persons, which include any individual, body or business, may also make representations, providing they are relevant to any of the objectives.

The four licensing objectives are:

  • the prevention of crime and disorder
  • public safety
  • the prevention of public nuisance
  • the protection of children from harm

Representations must be submitted within 28 days beginning the day after the date on which the application was given to the Licensing Authority.

What happens if relevant representations are made?

If representations are made, the Council will initially suggest that the parties attempt to reach agreement over the concerns.

If an agreement cannot be reached, the Council’s Licensing Panel will determine the application. The Panel is comprised of elected Members of the Council (for further information see the separate guidance on hearings).
