Premises related licensing
We are responsible for licensing premises for a wide range of functions, including venues for marriage and civil partnership ceremonies, performances of hypnotism, sale of non-medicinal poisons and caravan sites.
Caravan site licence
The Caravan and Control of Development Act 1960 prohibits the use of land as a caravan site unless the occupier holds a site licence issued by the local authority.
Performances of hypnotism for entertainment purposes must be authorised by the council.
Marriage and Civil Partnership venues
Any venue used for the solemnisation of marriages and the registration of civil partnerships must have been approved by the Council.
Non-medicinal poisons licence
The Poisons List Order 1982 contains a list of poisonous substances, the supply of which is regulated under the Poisons Act 1972. The substances identified within Part I of this list are poisons that may only be sold by a registered pharmacist, while the substances in Part II of the list may only be sold by persons registered to do so with their local authority.
You must apply to be entered on the Lambeth Council's register of persons permitted to sell Part II poisons.
You must re-register each year by 30 April.
