We will consider the application before issuing, renewing or modifying or a certificate.
We may have to conduct site visits and require the production of other documentation to ensure that storage requirements are being met.
Once we have received your application together with the correct fee and any necessary documentation and we are satisfied that the premises meet storage requirements, we will agree to issue, renew or modify the certificate.
We aim to process your application as soon as possible.
There is no statutory period for determining applications, however, we aim to determine applications within 28 days.
If I do not hear from you for 28 days, can I assume it has been granted ("tacit consent")?
No, tacit consent will not apply. This is because it is in the public interest that we must process your application before it can be granted.
If you have not heard from us within a reasonable period, please contact the Licensing team
