We have received the applications listed on this page in our role as licensing authority under the Licensing Act 2003. The applications are advertised for 28 consecutive days after the day that it is received.

Where an application has been submitted correctly but the advertisement in the newspaper is incorrect because it does not adequately describe the hours and licensable activities, we will notify the applicants. The applicant will be required to re-start the 28 day consultation period and re advertise the application.

Where a second advert is still deemed inadequate the application will be rejected and the applicant will be required to restart the entire application process.

• new premises licences under section 17
• provisional statements under section 29*
• variations to premises licences under section 34
• new club premises certificates under section 71

It is an offence knowingly or recklessly to make a false statement in connection with an application the maximum fine for which a person is liable on summary conviction for making a false statement is a Level 5 fine on the standard scale (£5000).

*Note on Provisional Statements

Please note that, if the application is for a provisional statement, representations are restricted once the statement has been issued and before a final licence is granted. Representations made after the grant of a provisional statement and before the grant of the corresponding premises licence or club premises certificate may not be made if a person could have made the same representations or substantially the same representations but failed to do so without reasonable excuse; and there has been no material change in circumstances relating to the premises or area since the provisional statement was made.

Application to Review a Premises Licence:

Club Batchwood 

The Police review relates to the licensing objectives of the prevention of crime and disorder and the public safety. The Police state in their review:



The current management of this premises is undermining the licensing objectives. Hertfordshire Constabulary has attempted to work with the premises and the DPS to address preventing crime and disorder and protecting public safety. The Club is still failing in supporting these objectives. There has been scenes of violence which appear due to intoxication levels at the venue. Door staff have not controlled the situations and at times have aggravated them.
