Pre-Application Advice

Breckland and South Holland Councils have teamed together to launch ehcUK. The company operates across Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire and amongst offering training it also offers consultancy and pre-application advice.

The pre-application and application advice service is there to support your licensing application. The aim is to help you to mitigate any problems which may arise during the application process.  However, our advice cannot prejudge the outcome of the licensing application, especially if representations are received and a hearing takes place before the Licensing Sub-Committee.

If you would like to request a call back to discuss your requirements further, please fill out our Icon for pdf Pre-application Advice Request Form [1.08MB].
