Apply for an alcohol and entertainment license

Thanet District Council has responsibility for licensing the sale of alcohol, late night refreshment and regulated entertainment.

The Council's Licensing Policy Statement explains how we do the job, act as a decision making tool and gives guidance to applicants, licensees and residents.

We work in partnership with the Police, Kent Fire and Rescue and trade groups like the Thanet Licensed Victuallers Association to make sure the best possible licensing service is provided in Thanet.
