How do I object to an application?

Havant Borough residents, ward Councillors, MPs, MEPs and business associations may make representations to the council about the grant of, or a change of, a licence.  A Licensing Committee of Councillors will, as long as the representations are not irrelevant or vexatious, consider these.

When a licence is first applied for, copies will also have been sent to the 'responsible authorities' (see list below).  Each of these authorities may make representations about the application and this may result in conditions being imposed or the application being refused.

Following a substantive complaint concerning failure to uphold one or more of the licensing objectives which is not frivolous, vexatious or repetitive, a council hearing will be held to review the licence.  The council may decided not to do anything, or to impose extra conditions deemed to be appropriate for the promotion of the licensing objectives on the licence, or to suspend either all or part of the licence for up to three months.

If someone wishes to appeal against a council's licensing decision, they have the right to do so to the magistrates court.
