Special licence applications must be received at least 20 working days* (preferably more) before your event date. *Working days don't include public holidays, weekends and the period from 20 December to 15 January inclusive. If your application is contested (opposed or objected to), it will go to a hearing in front of the District Licensing Committee and any decision about your application will take longer. Need advice? Contact us if you have any questions, email email@example.com or phone us at 07 8680200.
