Licensing and Permits

  • Alcohol and Entertainment Open or Close

    If your business provides any licensable activities - sell alcohol, hot food and drink, or provide certain types of public entertainment - you will need a licence from us. A public register is currently being compiled which will give details of all licences and certificates granted under the Licensing Act 2003.

    A licensable activity can be:

    • the sale of alcohol
    • the supply of alcohol at a club
    • the provision of regulated entertainment eg live or recorded music, dancing, indoor sporting event
    • the provision of facilities to allow regulated entertainment to take place
    • the provision of late night refreshment between 11 pm and 5 am.

    There are four types of licences which you can apply for:

    • If you sell alcohol, provide regulated entertainment, or late night refreshment, you should apply for a Premises Licence
    • If you are a club that supplies alcohol, regulated entertainment, or late night refreshment, apply for a Club Premises Certificate
    • If you supply or authorise the sale of alcohol, (other than in premises having a Club Premises Certificate) then you will need to apply for a Personal Licence
    • If you are organising a small scale (less than 500 people) event and intend to sell alcohol/refreshments or provide regulated entertainment, then you will need to apply for a Temporary Event Notice (TEN).

    Licensing Reviews
    The operators of licensed premises are required to actively promote the four licensing objectives:

    1. Prevention of crime and disorder
    2. Prevention of public nuisance
    3. Public safety
    4. Protection of children from harm

    Any interested party or responsible authority may call for the review of a premises licence if they believe that the licensing objectives are not being promoted.

    Calling for a Review
    Application for a review must be made on the Licensing Review (1kb) application form and submitted to us at Licensing Team, North East Derbyshire District Council, 2013 Mill Lane, Wingerworth, Chesterfield , Derbyshire S42 6NG. Copies must also be sent on the same day to the premises licence holder and to each of the responsible authorities. Failure to send these copies may render the application as invalid.

  • Animal Open or Close

     From the 1st October 2018, The Animal Welfare (licensing of Activities Involving animals) (England) Regulations 2018 came into effect.

    A copy of the legislation can be found below

    Licences for the following activities will be needed when carried out as a business with the exception of breeding. All activities will be assessed as to whether they need a licence. If you are unsure if you need a licence please contact Environmental Health. If you are trading illegally and then apply for a licence then this may impact on the consideration of your application.

    • Selling Animals as Pets
    • Providing or Arranging for the Provision of Boarding of Cats or Dogs Which includes:-
    • Cat boarding
    • Kennel Boarding for Dogs
    • Home Boarding for Dogs
    • Day Care Boarding for Dogs
    • Hiring Out Horses For Riding or Instruction in Riding
    • Breeding Dogs
    • Keeping or Training Animals For Exhibition

    If you have a licence

    If you have an existing valid licence, you don’t need to renew it until it expires. The application process does take 10 weeks so if you do not want a break in your licence term then you must apply at least 10 weeks prior to your current licence expiring.

    If you have a dog boarding licence and also look after dogs in the day, you will need to obtain a licence for this activity too if the operation is different to the home boarding operation. I suggest you talk to your Officer.

    If you have a performing animals licence, you’ll have to apply for one by 1st April 2019, even if your old one hasn’t expired by that date.

    If you don’t have a licence or you need a new one

    Application forms are available at the following locations and are activity specific. Each application form has an accompanying guidance document you will need to download and read and also the appropriate fees that need to accompany the application are also available.

    Eligibility

    The licence holder must be a named person who is not disqualified from holding a licence in accordance with the requirements of regulation 11 of the regulations. A person cannot apply for a licence if they have previously had a licence revoked under the Regulations or is disqualified from keeping an animal under any other legislation.

    Application Forms and Fees

    The following documents are application forms which are activity specific, and appropriate fees. Please note home boarding licences and day care licences are to be submitted on the animal boarding application. Licences for home boarding and day care cannot be run at the same premises.

    Animal boarding form Breeding and sale of dogs
    Dangerous wild animals Hiring out horses

  • Business and Street Trading Open or Close

    A charitable collection must not be held in any street or public place in our district without a street collection permit issued by us. Applications (264kb) should be made at least one month before the proposed date of the collection. The collection is subject to regulations relating to such matters as the minimum age of collectors and the safeguarding and auditing of proceeds.

    Any person wishing to make an appeal to members of the public by means of a collection for charitable purposes, by way of house to house visits (including places of business, such as public houses) requires a licence issued by us.

    Certain charities holding Home Office Exemption Orders do not need a licence but must notify us of the collection dates and the specific areas to be covered by the collection. All collectors must wear a badge which is obtained from The Stationary Office. The Stationary Office can be contacted by telephone on 0870 6005522 or their address is: TSO Ltd, Post Cash Department, PO Box 29, Norwich, NR3 1GM

    Following the charitable collection the organiser must submit a return to us that details the amount collected and all expenses incurred. This return must be submitted wihin 3 months of the end of the collection. There is no charge for the notification.

  • Food Open or Close

    If you are planning to start a food business, you must register your premises at least 28 days before opening. This applies to most types of food business, including catering businesses run from home, and mobile or temporary premises such as stalls and vans. If you use two or more premises you will need to register all of them using our Food Registration Form (89kb).

    If food premises are to be used by several catering businesses (for example a village hall or conference centre) the person who allows the premises to be used for this purpose is responsible for registering them. All food businesses are required to have a documented food safety management system based on the principles of HACCP. Although this may sound onerous a small catering business can get a free guidance pack called Safer Food and Better Business from the Food Standards Agency.

    In partnership with the Food Standards Agency, we joined the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme, where a food hygiene rating for a food premises is established following an inspection and taking into account observations and discussions made during the visit.

     

  • Gambling Open or Close

    The Gambling Bill modernises the law on gambling and provides for a unified regulator for gambling, the Gambling Commission. It introduces three licensing objectives which underpin the functions of the Commission and the Council.

    There are three types of licence:

    1. An Operator Licence, concerned with the management and conduct of gambling, issued and regulated by the Commission
    2. A Personal Licence, for persons with key operational functions connected with the gambling business, issued and regulated by the Commission
    3. A Premises Licence, for the property where the gambling takes place, issued and regulated by the Council.

    The Act also regulates amusement with prizes machines and lotteries. Information on current applications or licensed premises and conditions is available by searching the online public register.

    Further information, is available from the Gambling Commission websites.

  • Scrap Metal & Motor Salvage Open or Close

    The UK Government passed the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 with the intention of regulating scrap metal dealers, collectors and motor salvage operators. The Act replaced all of the existing legislation for motor salvage operators and scrap metal dealers.

    The Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 came into force on 1 October 2013. Under the new Act there are two types of licence:

    • A Site Licence (381kb) – this will be required where a business is carried on as a scrap metal dealer at a premises. A site manager will be required to be named for each site. The licensee will then be permitted to operate from that site as a scrap metal dealer including transporting to and from those sites from any local authority area. We have published our list of scrap sites (96kb).
    • A Collector’s Licence (381kb) – this authorises the licensee to operate as a mobile collector in the area of the issuing local authority permitting them to collect scrap metal as appropriate. This includes commercial as well as domestic scrap metal. If a mobile collector operates within more than one local authority’s district, a licence will be required for each authority that (s)he operates in. We have published our list of scrap collectors (92kb).

     

    In order to apply for a licence under the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 persons will be required to make an application to the council. The application form should be accompanied by the following:

    • The relevant fee.
    • A basic DBS check for every person named in the application, which is less than 3 months from the date of issue (see information below). 
    • A passport style photograph of every person named on the application (If applying for a collectors).

    All applicants and named persons will be required to prove their identity by means of photographic identification, e.g. a passport or photo card driving licence and a utility bill. It is therefore necessary that your application is given to the licensing team in person. Your identity and your DBS certificate will be checked and copied, then immediately returned to you. Please discuss these requirements with a licensing officer if you are unsure what to bring in with your application.

    Exemptions

    If scrap metal is a by-product of your business you may be exempt from the need to be licensed, it will be necessary for you to prove the proportion of your business that consists of dealing in scrap metal.

    Mobile Collectors

    Mobile Collectors who work in different council areas will have to apply for a collectors licence in each of those areas. You must contact the relevant council to obtain an application form.

    Every person working on a vehicle collecting scrap metal must be licensed unless they are properly employed by a business licensed for a site or as a collector.

    DBS Certificate

    Before you apply, you and every person listed on the application form, need to obtain a Basic Disclosure Certificate from Disclosure Scotland.

    Registration Fees

    Licence Charge
    Site Licences £230
    Collectors Licences £215
    Additional Site £100
    Variation £150
    Renewal £180
    Change of Details £25
    Repalcement Licence £25

The applicant must ensure that the procedures, equipment and facilities used for the above purposes comply fully with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

    The cost of registering a premises is £76.50. For an individual licence the cost is also £76.50.

    Skin piercing application form

  • Taxis & Private Hire Open or Close

    We are responsible for granting licences to the proprietors, operators and drivers of Hackney Carriages and Private Hire Vehicles. 

    We are part of the ‘National Register of Refusals and Revocations’. This new register will allow licensing authorities to record details of where a taxi driver licence has been refused or revoked. It will allow our licensing team and other licensing authorities to check new applicants against the register. This will help to prevent people found not to be fit and proper in one area from securing a licence somewhere else through deception and non-disclosure. Any driver who has their licence refused or revoked by the council will have their details recorded on the register. Any details placed on the register will be held for a period of 25 years before being deleted.

     

    Hackney Carriages may be the traditional London Cab style or may be normal saloon vehicles distinguishable by the fact that these vehicles have a white bonnet and boot/tailgate and will display a roof sign and display a blue and white plate on the rear of the vehicle.

    Private Hire vehicles are usually 'saloon type' vehicles and include mini buses with up to and including eight passenger seats and display a yellow and red plate on the rear of the vehicle. Both types of vehicle display a small window sticker of the relevant colour in the windscreen showing the licence details.

    The basic difference between the two vehicles is that Hackney Carriages can be "flagged down" on the street or at a rank within the District where it is licensed and Private Hire Vehicles must be pre-booked through a Private Hire Operator. If a Private Hire Driver accepts a fare off the street without it being pre-booked, they are liable to prosecution. It is also important to note that anyone taking a journey in a Private Hire Vehicle which has been "flagged down" may not be insured for the journey.

    • o Vehicle Licences - All vehicles that are to be used as Private Hire Vehicles or a Hackney Carriage must be licensed by the local authority. We must be satisfied that the vehicle is roadworthy, has a valid MOT certificate (if applicable) and is insured for the appropriate use. You will also be required to provide evidence that you own the vehicle (vehicle registration document / logbook) or proof of purchase if the vehicle is newly acquired. Licences are granted for a period of six-months and your vehicle will need to be tested each time you apply. 
    • o Driver Licences – Anyone who drives a Private Hire Vehicle or a Hackney Carriage must be licensed by the same local authority that licenses the vehicle.  We must be satisfied that the driver is ‘fit and proper’ to hold a licence. All drivers are required to complete a theory test (including local knowledge; basic maths and English; Highway Code; and legislation and conditions of licence), medical, practical driving test, safeguarding course and DBS criminal record & right to work in the UK checks. Driver licenses normally last for three years.
    • o Private Hire Operator Licences- Anyone wishing to take bookings for private hire vehicles must be licensed by the same local authority that licenses the vehicle they intend to operate. We must be satisfied that the driver is ‘fit and proper’ to hold a licence. All operators are required to complete a safeguarding course plus DBS criminal record & right to work in the UK checks

     Applications for driver, vehicle and operator licences must be made on the appropriate form and be accompanied by the relevant fee and accompanying documentation. For further information or to obtain an application form please contact the Licensing Section by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or calling 01246 217877.

     In September 2018 the local authority approved a revised Taxi Licensing Policy which is divided into five sections for ease of reference. The five sections are:

               Drivers

               Vehicles

               Operators

               Enforcement and Offences

               Equality Act

    During October 2018 we wrote to all our licence holders to advise them of the key Policy changes and a copy of the letter can be found here

    One key change to the new policy is the introduction of a new vehicle condition which will be added to all new private hire vehicle and hackney carriage licences. This will require the vehicle to have a basic inspection each day prior to use and the findings of the inspection will need to be recorded. To assist the trade we have produced a Daily Inspection Book which can be downloaded here

    From the 1 January 2019 we will be introducing revised taxi licence fees and the revised fees can be found here.

     

     

  • Temporary Road Closure / Temporary Car Park Closure Open or Close
