Licensing authority returns

1 April 2021
23 February 2021

We ask all licensing authorities to supply information annually on the numbers of permits and permissions issued and premises inspections conducted in the form of licensing authority returns. This data is an essential source of information and can assist us in improving our work as risk-based regulators.

See our quick guide on information sharing and why it's important. (opens in new tab)

The full report is sent to all licensing authorities. It allows you to compare your authority with others and highlights trends. This data is an essential source of information and can help us improve our work.

The return is also included in the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government Single Data List.
