Section 6 - Application for site licence
14.This section is modelled on section 3 of the 1960 Act with some additions. It sets out requirements for site licence applications to local authorities. Subsection (2) provides details of what an application must contain and subsection (3) requires applicants to provide information requested by the local authority. Under subsection (4) an application must be accompanied by a declaration by the applicant that the manager (or applicant) is a “fit and proper” person to manage the site. Under subsection (5), a local authority may require an application to be accompanied by a fee fixed by the local authority, provided it has published its fees policy (see the commentary to section 36).
