The prevention of crime and disorder

 This relates to any crime, disorder or anti-social behaviour at the premises or related to the management of the premises. A licence holder/applicant cannot generally be held responsible for the conduct of individuals once they leave the premises;

Public safety

 This relates to the safety of the public on the premises, i.e. fire safety, electrical circuitry, lighting, building safety or capacity, and first aid.

Prevention of public nuisance

 This can relate to issues such as hours of operation, noise emanating from the premises, vibrations, lighting and litter.

Protection of children from harm

 This relates to protecting children from the activities carried out on the premises whilst they are there. The law already provides special protections for children under 18 to buy alcohol.


Please also read How to make a representation for further information.

It is an offence to, knowingly or recklessly, make a false statement in connection with an application and the maximum fine for which a person is liable on summary conviction is £5000.
