If we grant your licence, we will give you a rating based on your standard.
The rating will be between one and five, with five being the best you can receive.
When we give you your rating, we will tell you:
- why we have given you that rating
- what you would need to do to receive a higher one when you renew your licence
If you want to achieve a higher rating before your licence renewal, you can take the actions we suggest then request a new rating.
If we gave you five, you can't request a new rating at this is the best you can receive.
To request a new rating, you will need to:
- contact us in writing
- pay the £106 fee
You can pay this fee by:
- calling our Business Support team on 01245 606662
- sending us a cheque (payable to Chelmsford City Council)
When you contact us to renew your licence, we will arrange an inspection.
After the inspection, we will tell you our decision about your rating.
We will carry out the inspection and tell you our decision within three months of receiving your request.
If you receive a new rating, your licence will not change. It will still be valid from the date we granted it, and not from the date you receive your new rating.
