Some of these policies have been produced as a statutory requirement of the relevant legislation governing that particular licensing regime. From time to time, we review the policies below and, in certain circumstances, consult the public and other stakeholders on any revisions.
The policies are in place to guide us when we consider licence applications. These policies can also help applicants when considering applying for a licence.
