Licensing in Wychavon

Licensing, Environmental Health & Trading Standards have now merged to become one Shared Service. This amalgamates the six licensing districts of Worcestershire to form of new organisation called ‘Worcestershire Regulatory Services'.

For any licensing query please call us on 01905 822799. Alternatively you can email us at For any correspondence via post please send to:-

Worcestershire Regulatory Services (Licensing)
Civic Centre
WR10 1PT

In addition, licensing surgeries are available to members of the public and businesses where an officer is available to discuss any licensing query. These surgeries are held at the Civic Centre, Queen Elizabeth Drive, Pershore (Tuesday 13:30 – 15:00 ; Thursday 9:30 – 11:00). These are ‘drop-in' surgeries where customers are seen on a ‘first-come-first-served' basis.

Worcestershire Regulatory Services (licensing) administers most of the licences that Wychavon District Council are responsible for. The majority of licences that we issue are to keep the public safe.

Delivery of applications to us:

Temporary Event Notices - if you are sending us two copies of a TEN, please don't try to squeeze it in to a small envelope with an ordinary "letter" stamp, as that is likely to incur an excess postage charge and delivery is delayed.  You are likely to need a large envelope and a "large letter" stamp - speak to post office counter staff for advice.  Alternatively, deliver the Notice to us directly at the Civic Centre (especially if you are short of time: delivery at our customer contact centres does not count as the first day!).  Remember that TEN's must be served at least ten working days before the event, not including the day of the event nor the day that we receive it at the Civic Centre.

Cheques must be made payable to Wychavon District Council.

As well as Royal Mail's postal service, we are more than happy for our customers who subscribe to the DX service to send items to us at our DX address:  DX25934 Pershore.

Please note:  Applications for licences will only be deemed accepted when they are received at the Civic Centre offices, Pershore with the appropriate payment.  We do have on-line facilities via the national Business Link portal for a number of applications: where available, details are included on the relevant pages.
