What you need to know...
You do not need to let us know you have a legal interest in a premises - it is your choice.
Once we receive your notification we will record your interest, endorse the notice and then return it to you. We will then formally let you know of any new applications made for the premises that relate to licences under the Licensing Act 2003.
Your notice of interest is valid for 12 months from the date of receipt - after this time you can submit a notification again.
