We understand that paying for those extra bills can become a burden for the elderly within our community, that’s why we provide a contribution towards the cost of a television licence for pensioners subject to certain conditions. The contribution is made per licence. Therefore only one contribution per household can be made each year.
You must meet the following 3 criteria:
- Be at least 60 years old at the time of purchasing the TV licence.
- Have an income of no more than £271.15 per week (from 1 April 2017). In the case of a couple, this is a joint income level. For this purpose income includes, all income received except any disability pensions or allowances which are ignored.
- Must reside within Bolsover District and must be a householder (either owner/occupier or tenant) or be living in a separate part of the premises for which a separate licence is required.
The contribution is restricted to £12, irrespective of whether you have a black and white or colour television licence. You will receive a cheque for £12.00 to your home address within 10 working days. Your TV licence will be returned to you at the same time.
Please apply for your contributuion using our TV Licence application form (40kb).
If your business provides any licensable activities - sell alcohol, hot food and drink, or provide certain types of public entertainment - you will need a licence from us. A public register is currently being compiled which will give details of all licences and certificates granted under the Licensing Act 2003.
A licensable activity can be:
- the sale of alcohol
- the supply of alcohol at a club
- the provision of regulated entertainment eg live or recorded music, dancing, indoor sporting event
- the provision of facilities to allow regulated entertainment to take place
- the provision of late night refreshment between 11 pm and 5 am.
There are four types of licences which you can apply for:
- If you sell alcohol, provide regulated entertainment, or late night refreshment, you should apply for a Premises Licence
- If you are a club that supplies alcohol, regulated entertainment, or late night refreshment, apply for a Club Premises Certificate
- If you supply or authorise the sale of alcohol, (other than in premises having a Club Premises Certificate) then you will need to apply for a Personal Licence
- If you are organising a small scale (less than 500 people) event and intend to sell alcohol/refreshments or provide regulated entertainment, then you will need to apply for a Temporary Event Notice (TEN).
The operators of licensed premises are required to actively promote the four licensing objectives:
- Prevention of crime and disorder
- Prevention of public nuisance
- Public safety
- Protection of children from harm
Any interested party or responsible authority may call for the review of a premises licence if they believe that the licensing objectives are not being promoted.
Calling for a Review
