About Linda

A specialist in providing operational and professional advice and bespoke training in all things related to most Local Authority Licensing regimes.

Are you a business providing licensable activities such as the Sale of Alcohol or Late Night Food, or the provision of Music?

Are you struggling to work through the maze that is the Licensing Act 2003?

Are you planning an event that requires a licence from the Local Authority to provide Alcohol and/or Entertainment?

Maybe you are a new business starting that requires an Animal Welfare licence for a Cattery or Kennel or home dog boarding or breeding?

Are you planning to start up a Taxi or Private Hire business or need advice following a licence suspension or revocation?

With over 28 years’ experience as a Senior Local Authority Licensing Practitioner, I am very familiar on how Local authorities work and think. I have significant experience working with the necessary statutory bodies that are involved in many licence application types using my wealth of experience and effective negotiation skills.

If you require specific legal advice you will need to contact a specialist licensing lawyer. With my wide professional circle I can provide you with details of relevant legal specialists who can help.

Linda... has successfully negotiated with Local Authority Licensing Teams on our behalf regarding their interpretation of the Licensing Act 2003 in respect of our applications.
