Licensing service changes

We have made temporary changes to our licensing services due to the coronavirus

Street cafe licensing

We issue licences for street cafes, which allow tables and chairs to be put on the street outside premises.

Guidance

All applicants should read through the guidance document below prior to completing the online application form above. All required documents must be submitted with the required fee (detailed on application).

Action Counters Terrorism (ACT) training

Street café licences now include a condition that the licence holder and appropriate members of staff shall complete ACT (Action Counters Terrorism) training. This online training is available free of charge and takes around 55 minutes to complete in one or multiple sessions. Once all units have been completed the candidate can print a certificate or save it electronically for future reference. It is recommended that the licence holder also retains copies of completion certificates.

The units cover:

  • Introduction to Terrorism
  • Identifying Security Vulnerabilities
  • How to Identify and Respond to Suspicious Behaviour
  • How to Identify and Deal with a Suspicious Item
  • What to do in the Event of a Bomb Threat
  • How to Respond to a Firearms or Weapons attack
  • Summary and Supporting Materials.
