Dear Mr Sheppard
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
Thank you for your recent Freedom of Information request. You asked to be provided 
with the following information:
 
Could you please provide me with a list of premises that had an application for the 
renewal of their premises licence rejected by the council, between January 1 2009 
and January 2019. 
For each premises, could you please provide me with a copy of the decision report 
that was produced, which should give the reason why the licence was revoked or not 
renewed. 
I would like premises which had the following types of licence to be included in this 
list: 

- Sale of alcohol 
- Live music 
- Recorded music 
- Sexual Entertainment 
- Night club 
- Suis generis 

Clarification Received 19/06/2018 
Dear Westminster City Council, 
Thanks for your response. 
Could you please delete references to "suis generis" licences from my request. 
Further Clarification Received 4/07/2019 
Dear Westminster City Council, 
I thoroughly disagree with your assertion that 10213867 constitutes a "repeated 
request". 


Having a licence revoked is not the same as a licence renewal being 
refused/rejected. 

I understand a revocation (as per my request 9928166) to be when a licence is 
rescinded following a review of said licence. 

Whereas a refusal/rejection occurs as the result of an application, by the licence 
holder, for their current licence to be renewed. 

Therefore I hope you will understand that my two requests are distinct in their nature. 
You should therefore provide a response with information that varies from the 
response given to request 9928166. 

Could you therefore please proceed with my request 10213867. 
 
Response
 
I can confirm that the information requested is held by Westminster City Council. I 
have detailed below the information that is being released to you. 
 
We don’t have any applications that have been rejected. 
 
If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for 
an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to 
apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Further information is 
also available from the Information Commissioner at:
