Licensing registers

We have a legal duty to have licensing registers available to the public. These registers detail who holds a licence. In some cases the start and expiry date is included.

In August 2014 the Government introduced regulations which require the publication of decisions by officers for non-executive functions where they are for an authorisation, licence or where it affects the rights of an individual.

The adoption of the Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations in August 2014 changed the requirements placed on local authorities in regard to reporting decisions taken under delegated authority by officers.

Prior to the new regulations, officers were required only to produce a report on decisions taken under authority delegated to them under the Authority's Executive powers.

The requirement has now been extended all decisions, whether made by an officer or on behalf of another committee/sub-committee or joint committee, in which the council participates. This applies where the decision has been delegated to an officer, either under a specific delegation or under a general authorisation.

A summary of all decisions made by officers for licences, registrations, permits and consents issued  are detailed in 'List of Determined Licences'.
