Camden Council states members of the public can support or oppose an application, but comments must not be “frivolous, repetitive or vexatious”. They must address the effect the application could have on one or more of the four licensing objectives:
prevention of crime and disorder; protection of children from harm; public safety; and prevention of nuisance.
