A premises licence application must be made to the licensing authority- the authority within whose area the premises is situated. If the premises is situated in Newark and Sherwood, then this council will process the application.
To make an application you must submit:
Responsible Authorities and interested parties will be able to make representations against the proposed use or variation applied for. This means they can make valid objections against the application, giving reasons why they think it shouldn’t be allowed. The period in which representations can be made is 28 days from the day the council receives the application.
If there are no representations the licence will be granted on the 29th day. If there are any representations made, the application will go for a hearing before this council’s Licensing Committee/Panel for a decision within 20 working days after the initial representation period.

If the holder of a premises licence wish to make changes to their licence they will need to first make an application to the Council’s Licensing Service. The typical changes requested include: extending hours; removing, adding or amending conditions; altering the layout plan attached to the licence. Usually these changes will require a full variation application unless the changes are considered minor in which case a minor variation application may be acceptable by the Council. If the proposed changes are substantial then an applicant may need to submit a new premises licence application.
Any local resident or local business can ask the licensing authority to review a premises licence at any time, by completing and submitting an application form. A responsible authority such as the police, fire service or environmental health can also ask for a review of a licence where they believe that problems are undermining one of the licensing objectives. Local authorities must advertise the application and invite representations from responsible authorities and residents.
You are invited to attend a hearing at the council's offices before the Licensing Sub-Committee, which will consider the representations that made. The Licensing Authority can then modify any conditions of the licence, exclude a licensable activity, request the removal of the designated premises supervisor, suspend the licence for up to three months, or revoke (remove) the licence completely.
