General Licences


Making a Representation

The Licensing Register contains the currently issued licences within the Bolton borough. Any new applications or variations for premises licences (alcohol/takeaways) or gambling licences will be advertised in the local press and on the premises itself.

If you wish to make representation about one of these applications, you must do so in writing by the date specified on the advertisement. The Licensing Unit address is:

Licensing Unit
Ground Floor,
Town Hall,
Victoria Square,
Bolton, BL1 1RU

Search Tips

All search fields perform a 'contains' search, this means that you can supply a partial address or operator name and the site will return all records that contain that value anywhere within the particular field.

Entering search strings into more than one field performs an 'and' search, so a search for 'cafe' in Operating As and 'high street' in Address will return results that match both cafe and high street.

None of the fields are case sensitive.
Wildcard searches such as * and % are not accepted.
