Application process

Once a valid application is received, we will send a public notice to be displayed on the premises.

This must be sited where it can be easily read and must remain for 5 working days beginning the day after your application is valid.

You will also need to send us a photograph of your notice on display.

Further guidance

The government has also produced some guidance for businesses, which can be found on the government website.
