What the council are saying is it's 5 years unless they decide otherwise.

You, or the applicant, have no say on the matter.

“(2)Every licence granted under this section shall remain in force for five years or for such lesser period, specified in the licence, as the district council think appropriate in the circumstances of the case.”


So although at the discretion of licensing still an option

Threat of going to Magistrates court appealing condition of licence will probably make them change their mind and issue an operators license for the shorter period requested.

Could this person not piggyback off someone else's ops license until they get the cash to fund the longer license?
