Since the commencement of the Licensing Act 2003 we have been heavily involved in the licensing of premises, particularly those carrying out regulated entertainment, including commenting on licensing applications and liaising with applicants and licensing departments to agree suitable conditions to prevent public nuisance and protect both neighbouring residents and the licensees.
We have regularly undertaken investigations to identify the source of and solution to a number of noise related problems from licensed venues, along with regular appearances at licensing committees and review hearings to present expert evidence for and against proposed action.
Noise is a growing source of nuisance and annoyance in our lives. Local authorities are being given increased powers enabling them to take quick and decisive action against businesses causing a noise problem. The public have the right to call a review of any licensed premises if they believe they are affected by its activities. This can result at best in a costly and length licence review or at worse in the loss of your licence.
Martin Environmental Solutions can offer advice and assistance during the licensing application process and should any complaints be received once your license is in operation.
We can assist in the identification of potential issues and help you develop cost effective solutions to rectify them, whilst liaising with the local licensing authorities and residents to avoid committee hearings, licensing reviews or any formal enforcement action.
For existing and potential owners of animal boarding establishments, pet shops, riding schools and other animal establishments, we can assist with licensing applications and compliance.
Our knowledge of the licensing procedure combined with the extensive understanding of noise nuisance and control issues places us in a strong position to provide advice on all licensing applications.
In addition, we can assist in the investigation of non-compliance with licensing conditions and providing expert independent evidence at review hearings.
We also have expertise in animal licensing and can offer our services for the routine inspection of all animal boarding establishments, pet shops, riding schools and other establishments related to animal licensing.
