A special Licence allows for the sale of alcohol at special occasions. This is normally used to extend the hours or area of a licensed premise or to Licence one-off or a series of up to 12 events where no Licence is currently held.
Licensing Inspector, Police and Medical Officer of Health will report on your application. If there are no objections it will be approved. If there are any objections that cannot be resolved, your application will be referred to the District Licensing Committee (DLC) for determination.
