Once a designation application is received the Licensing Authority will undertake the first of two 28 day consultations. This first consultation will be advertised in the local newspaper and will identify the premises that are proposing to have their licensed area designated. Once the first consultation has come to an end and should there not be any objections to the granting of the application a second consultation will begin. The second 28 day consultation will confirm the designation of the licenced area.
Once these consultations have finished then the process for the Designation of the Street Trading Area will be complete.
