Alcohol and Entertainment (Licensing Act 2003)

Cheshire East Council is responsible for licensing the sale of alcohol, provision of regulated entertainment and late night refreshment.

Statement of Licensing Policy

The Licensing Act 2003 requires that each licensing authority writes, consults on and publishes a Statement of Licensing policy (PDF, 388KB). This policy shows how Cheshire East Council will deal with applications in order to promote the four licensing objectives:

  • the prevention of crime and disorder
  • public safety
  • the prevention of public nuisance
  • the protection of children from harm

Guidance for local residents and businesses with making representations under the Act can be found in the making representations section.

If you wish to make a complaint about a licensed property please do so via our licensed property complaints form.

Fees and Charges (Licensing Act 2003)

These fees and charges are determined by central government.

Licensing Registers

We are working towards providing the Public Register that holds all information on licences and certificates online. You can view the Public Registers at our licensing offices in Macclesfield, Congleton and Crewe.
