Appeals

53. A decision not to grant a full licence, or to suspend a full licence, would be capable of appeal. An appeal can be to the Sheriff in the first instance and could be on the grounds that the authority erred in law, based their decision on an incorrect fact, acted contrary to natural justice or exercised their discretion in an unreasonable manner.

54. Any appeal in relation to a public entertainment licence must be made within 28 days of the licence application being determined.

55. Where an application for a temporary public entertainment licence has been refused, the only avenue of appeal is by way of judicial review.
