Late Hours Catering Licence

In terms of Section 42 of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982, premises that are to be used between the hours of 11 pm and 5 am (including mobile premises operated by street traders) for the sale to the public of food for consumption on as well as off the premises require to be licensed. The late hours licensing scheme is administered by the Council's Licensing Team.

The Team are able to provide general guidance on the scheme but cannot assist you to complete your application form or provide legal advice on whether a licence is required. You should seek legal advice from a solicitor or advice centre if you are unsure as to whether you require a licence.
