The service is provided to ensure public safety through the licensing of regulated activities and to ensure that they are undertaken in accordance with the relevant licence conditions.

In addition the Council are the Licensing Authority under the Licensing Act 2003. The Act replaced existing licensing regimes concerning the sale of alcohol, public entertainment, theatres, cinemas and late night refreshment with a unified system of regulation. From February 2005 the Council has dealt with applications for premises and personal licences which took effect in November 2005. From this date the Council took over all the licensing functions some of which such as liquor licensing were previously undertaken by the Magistrates Court.

The Act requires that the Council carries out its various licensing functions so as to promote the following four licensing objectives:-

The prevention of crime and disorder
Public safety
The prevention of public nuisance
The protection of children from harm
