An annual fee is required to maintain your licence that is payable to the Licensing Authority. The fee is based on the non-domestic rateable value (NDRV) of the premises. Details are listed in the Guidance Booklet.
Cheques should be made payable to Eastbourne Borough Council. To set up a Direct Debit or to pay over the phone by card contact us. You can also pay by cash if you come into the Council offices at 1 Grove Road.
