Chiltern Law are specialists in all aspects of licensing law. We have real strength in Alcohol and Entertainment (The Licensing Act 2003) Gambling, Security Industry Authority, Taxi licensing and many other areas. We can assist with the application or variation as well as advise and represent you it review hearings and appeals.
On the 24th of November 2005 The Licensing Act 2003 came in to force replacing the existing scheme and handing licensing to local authorities. The Act establishes a single integrated scheme for licensing premises which are used for the sale or supply of alcohol, to provide regulated entertainment, or to provide late night refreshment. Permission to carry on some or all of these licensable activities will now be contained in a single licence — the premises licence — replacing several different and complex schemes.
