Application documents

Apply to the council for the area where you currently live.

You will need to complete the form on the Gov.UK website. You will also need:

  • a debit or credit card to pay the £37 fee
  • disclosure of convictions form
  • basic disclosure (less than a calendar month old so it is advised that you acquire this last)

We need to see original documents for your:

  • basic disclosure
  • licence qualification
  • photos

A copy of your right to work is fine.

Please post them to: The Licensing Team, Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, Castle House, Barracks Way, Newcastle-under-Lyme, ST5 1BL
