licence it is that you require, inform you of the fees, and send
you the appropriate forms.
Those forms should be completed and
returned with the fee, copies of plans of your premises (scale

arrangements if applicable. Cheques or
postal orders should be made payable to Bedford Borough
We will consider the application and
associated documentation and advise you of the outcome.
