What happens next


Once you have submitted a complete application, licensing officers will carry out a consultation with a number of stakeholders such as Gloucestershire Constabulary, Cheltenham Borough Council's environmental health team, Gloucestershire Highways and local businesses via Cheltenham Business Improvement District.

The consultation will last for 28 days starting on the day after we receive your application. Some applications will be referred to the council's licensing committee to be determined. 


All consents are granted subject to a number of trading conditions.  Please refer to the policy for more information.


If your application is granted, you will be expected to pay the consent fee before placing the object on the highway.  We would normally expect the full amount to be paid, however we may agree to paying the fee in instalments under certain circumstances. Please contact the licensing section to discuss.
