I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act') to request the following information from your 'premises licensing' department (or such other department as may possess the relevant information):
· venue name (i.e. Liquid, Wetherspoon's, etc.);
· postal address (including full postcode);
· maximum permitted occupancy (i.e. venue capacity);
· permitted opening/operating hours; and
· to the extent known, venue type (i.e. bar, pub, club, etc.),
of all premises within your jurisdiction that currently possess a licence to sell alcohol for consumption on-premises under the Licensing Act 2003 (as updated, amended and replaced from time to time).
For the avoidance of doubt, we do not require disclosure of details pertaining to premises that possess a licence to sell alcohol for consumption off-premises (i.e. shops, supermarkets, etc.) – whether under the
Licensing Act 2003 or otherwise.
Please provide the information in Excel spreadsheet (.xls, .xlsx) format by return email.
If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12 of the Act, please provide advice and assistance (under your obligations
as set out in Section 16 of the Act) as to how I can refine my request to bring such in the scope of the Act.
The information required by you is available on our website under the Licensing Public Access Register. To use the public access search go to this link

This should provide you with the full list of all our premises licensed for alcohol sales. You can save out this search and find the information required.
Some of the information you require we do not hold on our systems, for example you are requiring the type of venue, pub club etc, this information is not currently available, although will be updated in the coming months.
If you require clarification on any of the premises, please email email@example.com and we will endeavour to assist.
The capacity of the venue is no longer a requirement for a licensing application so we don’t hold that information.
