Licensing and The Fire Service

This section is intended as a guide to potential licencees of public premises but also applies to existing licencees. It does not seek to be a definitive guide to the licencing process rather a description of the Fire Services’ involvement in that process.

Licensing and The Fire Service
Throughout the year the Fire Service receives notification of applications to the courts for licences for various types of public premises. As a notice party to many types of licence applications the Fire Authority is requested to carry out inspections of premises and to be represented at the licence hearing to state if it has any objection to the licence being granted. The types of notifications the Fire Authority receives are:
• Certificates of Registration
• Excise Licenses
• Lottery Licenses
• Occasional Licenses
• Public Dance Hall Licenses
• Transfer of  Licenses
• Restaurant Licenses
• Declaratory Licenses
• Ad-Interim Transfers
