Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005

Section 22 – Objections and representations

47.This section is wider than the provisions in the Licensing (Scotland) Act 1976 relating to persons who have a statutory right to make objections and representations in relation to applications for premises licences. Any person (whether an individual or a corporate or unincorporated body) may object or make representations provided that, as noted in section 21(3), this is not considered by the Board to be vexatious or frivolous.

48.Subsection (2) allows the chief constable, in whose area an application for a premises licence has been made, a limited right to object to an application on the grounds that the applicant or a connected person is involved in serious organised crime. The chief constable may then, for the purposes of the crime prevention licensing objective, recommend refusal of the application.
