You`ll need to review your local authority`s licensing policy to see if they disclose their approach.

It seems very difficult to argue that a strict rule of distance was really intended. This does not allow for the flexibility provided by law to give those affected by the premises the opportunity to express themselves. Similarly, it seems to allow for the acceptance of representations from people who are not really concerned with the premises. How is this defined? The Guidelines for the Licence Act leave it to the licensing authority to determine whether it is likely that the person providing the performance is directly affected by disturbances that occur or may occur on or off the premises or in the immediate vicinity. The authorities are called upon to make their decision on the basis of common sense. How can you understand this if you are considering applying? Prior to joining Veolia, Rob worked as an associate at Donnelly, Conroy & Gelhaar, LLP and Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren s.c., where he focused on commercial, environmental and securities litigation.

He holds a bachelor`s degree from Colby College and a doctorate from Boston University School of Law. Surroundings — Vi*cin i*ty (v[i^]*s[i^]n [i^]*t[y^]; 277), n.

HENRY CAMPBELL BLACK, M. A. 1990. For example, a resident on the other side of a busy highway could make representations against a pub, although there was no possibility that it would be directly affected due to street noise and/or lack of places to cross. One of the most dramatic intentional changes made by the Licence Act, 2003 was the additional power granted to residents and other “interested parties” when they object to applications for licences for new premises or amendments to existing licences. Are we now more aware of who these interested parties are and who can exercise that power? Until the case law determines how the guidelines should be interpreted, if you receive an explanation about your request, you should take the time to find out exactly where they come from and to see if that person is directly affected. You never know what you can find through a little survey. On the other hand, the expectation that each representation will be properly investigated and the screening of persons who are not directly affected by the premises imposes an additional burden on the licensing authority to carry out potentially lengthy checks.
