Burnley Council has a number of licensing regulatory and registration powers and duties. The Licensing Unit deals with the licensing and registrations of a wide range of people and premises including liquor licences, sex establishments and charitable collections. The unit also licences hackney carriages, private hire vehicles, drivers and operators.
All council licensing services are now being provided remotely. All contact should be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All licence holders must behave responsibly and adhere to closure or social distancing requirements as required. Failure to follow government guidance will result in a review of the licence in due course.
Regulations and guidance have been introduced that require the closure of certain licensed premises to protect against the risk to public health arising from Coronavirus.
