No. It is in the public interest that the authority must process your application before it can be granted.
The target time period is 15 working days.
Interested parties have ten working days from the ‘initial day’, that is, the day after the licensing authority receive the application, to submit representations.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council must therefore wait until this period has elapsed before determining the application, but must do so at the latest within 15 working days, beginning on the first working day after we received the application, with effect either that:
- the minor variation is granted
- the application is refused
If we fail to respond to an applicant within 15 working days, the application will be treated as refused and we will return the fee to the applicant forthwith. However if agreed with the applicant, we may instead treat the undetermined application as a new application using the fee originally submitted.
