Licensing Board

Information on the Licensing Board.

Our Licensing Board handles the administration of a range of licences. Their main function is to regulate premises that sell alcohol to the public. The Licensing Board is also required by the Gambling Act 2005 to regulate certain gambling activities within the East Renfrewshire area.

The Board is made up of 5 councillors with various temporary licences granted under powers delegated to appointed East Renfrewshire Council officers, and all licensing fees are put back into the council to fund the licensing system, which is entirely hosted and administered by council employees.
