Frequently Asked Questions

If you cannot find the information you want in our service pages, you may be able to find it on this main FAQ page.
After looking at the statistics of how users browse our site we have now focused on the most used services as priority, many hundreds of information pages on our site that were accessed rarely or sometimes not at all have now been removed to de-clutter and make our site easier to use.

However we still accept that some information is desirable to help our users better understand aspects of how Carlisle City Council services work, so we provide FAQ lists on most our section landing pages.
All FAQs including any FAQ that does not fit in any of our our site sections are accessible here in the master FAQ page.

Application Evaluation Process

Application Evaluation Process

Applications must be made using the statutory form. The form must be completed in full and contain all of the relevant information requested in the form. For new applications, provisional statements and variations to change the layout of an existing premises licence plans must also accompany the application.

Applicants must also serve a notice of their application on each responsible authority. A list of these responsible authorities along with their addresses and contact information is available.

Applications for new, provisional statements or variations of existing licences must be advertised and are open to responsible authorities and the public to make representations. The consultation period for these application types are 28 calendar days from the day the application is received by the Licensing Authority. Applicants must place a public notice on the premises and advertise the application in a local newspaper.

An application must be accompanied by the correct fee.

Each premises licence that is issued by the authority will be subject to the Mandatory or Default conditions associated with that gambling activity.

Mandatory conditions can not be varied or removed in any way. However, applicants for new licences can request in their application to have the default conditions either removed from the licence or amended. For existing licensees a variation application is required to make changes or remove these default conditions.
