Licensing

The council is responsible for the licensing of a wide range of activities and premises.

The Licensing Team grant licences to ensure public confidence and safety and to minimise crime and disorder, nuisance and other disturbance to residents, visitors and businesses from licensable activities.

If you need to contact the Licensing Team, please email licensing@easthants.gov.uk.

Online applications

Many of our licences are available through the EU Services Directive.

This has been brought in to make it easier for service providers to offer their services to customers in all EU countries.

However some licences, including taxi and gambling licences, are not covered by this initiative.

A full list of licensing applications is available on our website.

Tacit consent

Tacit consent applies to every type of application.

Where tacit consent applies, this means that you will be able to act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from us by the end of the target completion period.

Tacit consent applies to all applications, whether they are received by post, online, or via e-mail.
