Whilst we do everything we can to avoid an objection to any applications lodged, we acknowledge that this is not always possible. When objections are received, we are experienced in engaging in negotiation with parties such as the police, environmental health and residents associations with a view to negotiating a mutually agreeable solution.
However, if this is not possible, an application must be determined through a hearing before the local authority’s Licensing Committee. Our solicitors are confident, experienced advocates with a long history of representing applicants at Committee hearings up and down the country.
We prepare for the hearing in conjunction with you, to ensure that we have the fullest possible understanding of your business. In this way, we can effectively communicate this to the Committee and deal with any concerns that they may have in terms of granting the application.
We know that the outcome of a Committee hearing can be make or break for your business, and we have a proven track record of achieving success for our clients at this crucial stage.
