Licensing Act 2003 - Alcohol and Entertainment

The Licensing Act 2003 replaced previous licensing legislation controlling public entertainments, late night refreshment houses, theatres, cinemas and late night takeaways and made provision for local authorities to act as the Licensing Authority within their boundaries.

Under the legislation the Licensing Authority is required to issue a Statement of Licensing Policy and you can view or download a copy of the policy for The Council of the Isles of Scilly here.

Some licence applications can take several weeks or more to process so it is essential that you help us to complete our checks as quickly as possible by providing all of the information requested on the relevant application form.

This section provides a comprehensive list of our application forms and fees. Fees are levied for the work that has to be done during the application process and are non-refundable so please bear in mind that if after payment, full consideration and processing, your licence application is rejected, the application fee will not be refunded.

Read the full Licensing Act 2003 for more information regarding the general determination, granting and rejection of licences. You can also find out more about alcohol licensing at the Home Office website. If you require more information on specific applications or licences issued please contact:
