When we receive your application we'll check it to make sure it's been completed correctly. We'll telephone you if there is anything else we need.

We will then consult with the police and they'll have 28 days from this date in which they can make a representation.  

If the police don't make a representation your application will be granted and we'll send you your permit in the post.  

If a representation is received then a hearing must be heard before members of the licensing sub-committee unless all parties agree this isn't necessary.

After the hearing we'll write to you with the decision.
