How to comment

on a Licensing application

Some applications received by Westminster City council have a period of time when representations or objections can be lodged, with the periods normally set by the relevant legislation for the specific licensing regime. The council welcomes views on these applications.

Comments can be submitted online, by e-mail or by post. All comments will be listed on their website alongside the application and supporting documents. Your contact details will not be published.

Each licensing regime has specific requirements relating to representations or objections and comments that do not relate to these requirements may not be considered when a decision is being made on the application. If you have any questions regarding the criteria for making representations or objections, please contact the Licensing Team at Westminster City Council.

Westminster City Council's four licensing objectives are:

  • the prevention of crime and disorder,
  • public safety,
  • the prevention of public nuisance,
  • the protection of children from harm.
