Licensing Enforcement


We carry out enforcement duties relating to licensed premises, licensed vehicles and drivers, and sex establishments.

Licensing Officers carry out their visits either on their own, with other Licensing officers, or with colleagues from the Responsible Authorities.

Large scale enforcement duties are carried out under the NightSafe partnership, which includes the Licensing Authority, Thames Valley Police, Environmental Protection, Trading Standards, Oxfordshire Fire & Rescue and other agency partners.

Data is shared between all of the Enforcement Officers to ensure that Oxford is kept as a safe city for people to enjoy and to assist the licensees in maintaining the highest level of standards.

All of our enforcement actions are carried out in accordance with our Corporate Enforcement Policy
