Offences under Licensing Act 2003 – Premises Licensing

Find a person by name
Or choose a department

There are a number of offences that can be committed under the Licensing Act 2003.

Council or Police officers can prosecute persons for any of these offences. Cases can be dealt with by way of a formal caution or in the Magistrates Court. The Court may also order the forfeiture of a Personal Licence, or suspend it for up to six months. If you are convicted of an offence, the Police may also raise objections to you holding a Personal Licence, and the Council can hold a hearing to consider whether your Personal Licence should be revoked.
