If you are paying in person at the Council House you will need to follow these How to pay for Gambling Licenceswhen using the payment machines.

The time taken to process an application depends on each individual application. The time period can range from a minimum of one month up to two months, but this could be longer if appeals are made following a committee hearing.

When an application is submitted, a 28 day statutory consultation period will follow. This allows time for Derbyshire Constabulary to give their response to the application - known as 'representations'. This is done by considering the three licensing objectives.
