What happens next

Once we've received your representation it will be carefully considered so as to ensure that it meets with the statutory requirements. In the event that we believe it may be possible to resolve any concerns expressed, then we will enter into mediation between the various parties. If mediation is successful the representation would have to be withdrawn and the licence/certificate would be granted on the basis of the application and subsequent mediation.

If mediation is unsuccessful, the application is referred to a hearing of the Licensing Sub-committee to be determined. The Licensing team compile a report which will include copies of all relevant written representations. The objectors house name or number, email address and telephone number will be redacted from the report.

The applicant along with any party that has submitted a representation is invited to the hearing (any of these parties could be represented by any person whether or not that person is legally qualified) and has the opportunity to address the sub-committee.

Please note that the name and address (excluding house number) of any person that has submitted a representation will ordinarily be disclosed to the applicant and are a matter of public record. Swale Borough Council is unable to accept or take in to account any anonymous representations.
