About licensing

Licensing plays an important role in the prevention of crime, disorder and public nuisance as well as preventing unfair trading and safeguarding local businesses and community groups. It gives you the chance to have a say and be more involved in your community.

Getting involved in decisions

Licensing Registers

You can access the Cheshire East Online Licensing Applications here.

You can view the Public Registers at our licensing offices in Macclesfield and Crewe during office hours.

How we will contact you

The Licensing Team have set procedures for making contact with members of the public:

  • By telephone  – If you contact us by telephone we will try to respond within 5 working days
  • By email or letter – If you contact us by email or letter will try to respond within 10 working days

There will be times of peak demand or complex queries when we may not be able to meet these timescales. In these circumstances we will try to respond as soon as possible.

The Council is mindful of our impact on the environment; because of this we will try to avoid contact by post. This means we will use email addresses and telephone numbers to contact you. You should ensure that any spam/junk mail setting in respect of your email accounts take this into consideration.

The Licensing Team will always issue licences or replacement licences through the post.
