The licensing authority can decide to take interim steps whilst waiting for a full review and these include ;
An expedited review takes place very quickly after it is applied for: Within 48 hours, the authority must give the licence holder a copy of the application and decide what steps, if any, it wishes to take. These steps come into immediate effect and cannot be appealed, although the authority can be asked to reconsider them at a hearing. If the authority decides to keep the measures in place, no appeal is possible at this stage.
Within a further 28 days, the licensing authority must hold a full review and make a further decision on the licence. At this stage, the option of revoking the licence is also available.
Our solicitors have a great deal of experience at dealing with expedited reviews and can represent you in front of the licensing sub-committee.
