At any stage, following the grant of a premises licence or club premises certificate, a responsible authority (or any other person) may ask the licensing authority to review the licence or certificate because of a matter arising at the premises in connection with any of the 4 licensing objectives.

An application for review may be made electronically, provided the licensing authority agrees and the applicant submits a subsequent written application.

In addition, the licensing authority must review a licence if the premises to which it relates was made the subject of a closure order by the police based on nuisance or disorder, and the magistrates’ court has sent the authority the relevant notice of its determination. A review must also be undertaken if the police have made an application for summary review on the basis that premises are associated with serious crime and/or disorder.
