Conclusion

56. The 1982 Act makes clear that any decision made by the local authority, when considering applications for public entertainment licences, should be reasonable. This applies to fees, conditions which may be added to the licence, and to the time taken to consider the application.

57. The licensing authority should consider the facts of individual licence applications, and make decisions which are based on local priorities and circumstances.

58. The licensing authority should, where possible, ensure that there is consistency in these decisions, and in the conditions which may be attached to any licence granted.

59. Any query about any public entertainment licensing requirements for funfairs should be directed to the local authority.
