Licensing authority returns

Who is it for?

We ask all licensing authorities to supply information annually on the numbers of permits and permissions issued and premises inspections conducted in the form of licensing authority returns. This data is an essential source of information and can assist us in improving our work as risk-based regulators.

What we need from you

We ask you to supply us with data on:

  • permits issued
  • temporary use notices issued
  • occasional use notices issued
  • premises inspections conducted
  • reasons for and outcomes of reviews.
