Committee details

Licensing Committee

Purpose of committee


The Committee meets quarterly and arranges for the proper discharge of the Council’s functions under the Licensing Act 2003, Gambling Act 2005, Sex Establishment Venue Licences under the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982, Street Trading determination functions under the London Local Authorities Act 1990 and the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013, which are statutory in nature.


The Committee does not make decisions on individual licensing applications, as these are delegated to the Licensing Sub-Committee (usually if there are objections) or Council Officers (if no-objections).


However, the Committee has an important role monitoring regulatory activity and wider socio-economic policies and how these impact upon licensing and gambling within Hillingdon, advising on relevant safeguards to protect residents and, in particular, children from harm.
