We will consider the application; in respect of any person, business or body not a responsible authority, if the grounds for review are considered frivolous, vexatious or repetitious, or have already been considered we can refuse to review the Licence/Certificate.
If we decide to reject your application for review, we will write to you and explain our decision and our reasons for it. If you are unhappy with a decision you may apply to the High Court for a judicial review of our decision.
We will arrange to advertise that the Licence/Certificate is to be reviewed (both on the premises, at Southport and Bootle Town Hall and on the website); other persons, businesses or bodies and responsible authorities will then have 28 days to make any representations.
At the end of that period, within 20 working days, a hearing is held before a licensing sub-committee to consider any representations. You, the licence holder(s) and any other people making representations will be invited to attend.
At the Hearing you will only be allowed to comment on the matters raised in your request for a review, or to amplify them. You will not be permitted to bring extra evidence to the meeting, or raise any other issues other than those referred to you in your application.
