What happens next
We can reject any Representation if we consider it to be frivolous, vexatious or a repetition.
If the representation is valid, we will arrange a hearing within 20 working days of the end of the Representation period. Those who have made a Representation will be invited to attend.
If you are not happy with the decision of the licensing committee
You have the right of appeal to the magistrates' court. If you are not sure of what the best course of action is for you, we would recommend that you seek professional advice.
