Licensing Panel

Purpose of Licensing Panels

The main purpose for setting up a Licensing Panel is to hear applications where relevant representations have been received from interested parties and responsible authorities in accordance with the Licensing Act 2003.

The full role and the functions of the Panel are set up within the Council's Constitution together with the Terms of Reference, which can be found on this page.

Membership of Licensing Panel

Membership of a Licensing Panel consists of three Members from amongst the members of the Licensing Committee.   Licensing Panels are held as and when required.  Ward Councillors do not sit on a panel involving an application within their ward.
