An application may be refused or a licence suspended or revoked on a number of grounds:
- Loss of amenity caused by traffic, noise, rubbish, potential for the harbourage of vermin, odour or fumes
- Obstruction of either pedestrian or vehicular access
- Interference with sight lines for any road users such as at road junctions, or pedestrian crossing facilities
- The applicant/licensee has failed, without reasonable excuse, to obtain a previous licence, or as the case may be, a current licence
- There is not enough space without causing undue interference or inconvenience to persons using the street
- The applicant/licensee’s premises have been the focus for incidents involving public disorder or nuisance.
