Local government touches the lives of everybody, every day. Local government is responsible for a range of vital services for people and businesses in defined areas. Among them are well known functions such as social care, schools, housing and planning and waste collection, but also lesser known ones such as licensing, business support, registrar services and pest control.
- In England, more than one million people work in local government across a range of different types of authorities, providing more than 800 different services to local communities.
- Local councils, which is the most common type of local authority, are made up of councillors who are elected by the public in local elections.
Councillors work with local people and partners, such as local businesses and other organisations, to agree and deliver on local priorities. The decisions are implemented by permanent council staff, council officers, who deliver services on a daily basis.
Authority, Responsibility and Accountability: Disparities – Authority, Responsibility, and Accountability are important parts of management and have distinct characteristics. However, there is a relation between these three terms but differs from each other in business terms.
Authority is the power delegated by senior executives to assign duties to all employees for better functioning. Responsibility is the commitment to fulfill a task given by an executive. Accountability makes a person answerable for his or her work based on their position, strength, and skills. Responsibility is task-specific, every individual in a team can be responsible for an assigned task to complete a project.
Accountability arises after an incident has happened regarding the work. It is the way to establish ownership of the results
What is a licensing officer UK
Introduction Licensing officers are known in some councils as enforcement officers. Local authorities have a duty to ensure that private hire vehicles (hackney cabs or taxis that may be flagged down, minicabs, minibuses, school buses and coaches) are safe to ride in.
They also make sure that public entertainment premises – these include pubs and clubs that provide music or live entertainment, school and village halls and a growing number of venues where weddings are held – obey health and safety regulations and local byelaws. Work Environment Some of the work takes place in council offices where licensees and drivers come to apply for licences.
Officers also go out and about to inspect vehicles and check premises. Some of the work is done on a regular basis; some is done in response to complaints from the public or as a result of ‘tip-offs’. They might for instance, visit a pub if someone has informed them that it holds illegal discos.
- Daily Activities In order to obtain a licence or ‘badge’ vehicle drivers have to fill in application forms, pass a written test of local knowledge and provide proof that they have undergone a voluntary police check and had a medical examination.
- Licensing officers help applicants to complete the forms if necessary and supervise the test.
They check all the information and issue licences fora fixed period. During this period they make random checks on vehicles, asking for the driver’s ID, checking that cab meters are accurate and making visual safety checks of vehicles. If they are not satisfied they have the authority to suspend the badge and require a driver to attend test centre for a full mechanical check.
- Much of this enforcement work takes place at evenings and weekends.
- They also regularly check lists of drivers whose licences are due for renewal and contact any who have not made an application.
- If working on public entertainment licences, licensing officers visit premises and interview the licensee.
They then ask the police, fire service and environmental health officers whether they have any objections to a licence being issued on the grounds of safety, public order, hygiene or noise and put a notice of the application in the local press. If members of the public object, their views are recorded.
Licensing officers finally recommend that the licensing board (composed of elected councillors) grants or withholds a licence. They are also responsible for issuing badges to doorkeepers or bouncers and ensuring that they have attended a required training course. In both aspects of the work they may have to go to court and give evidence if an applicant makes an appeal against a licence refusal.
Skills & Interests Licensing officers need:
excellent spoken and written communication skills; to be able to deal with people from all walks of life; to be confident about speaking in public – for when they attend court; to be tactful when dealing with some people – who may become aggressive – and learn the skill of listening while they get their complaint off their chest.
They must have or acquire a thorough knowledge of various local government acts and of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act. Entry Requirements Councils often ask fora minimum of four GCSEs grade at C or above, including English and Maths, but many entrants have higher qualifications, including degrees.
Experience of providing advice to the public or working in a customer service environment is usually looked for, this is an ideal type of job for ex-police officers or armed service personnel. A valid, clean driving licence is a normal requirement. Training is given on the job and, at the discretion of employing authorities, by attendance at short courses run by The National Association of Taxi and Private Hire Licensing and Enforcement Officers (Natphleo).
Future Prospects & Opportunities There are prospects of promotion to Senior Licensing Officer, with responsibility for the work of several licensing/enforcement officers and administrative officers/assistants. A small council might employ one licensing officer and one senior licensing officer.

Who issues a master use license?
How to Obtain a Master-Use License – Master-use licenses are obtained from the owner of the sound recording or someone approved to license intellectual properties on their behalf. This means that the first step in this licensing process is to identify the copyright owner of the sound recording.
- Most record label contracts include a clause requiring the recording artist to give up their master rights to the record company, which leaves a large number of masters in the possession of record labels.
- However, some recording artists have the leverage to negotiate contracts either to ensure they retain their master rights or to regain them at the end of the agreement’s term.
Additionally, there are independent artists that do not use record label services at all and thus do not face the issue of giving up the rights to their sound recordings. There are various ways to locate the owner of a sound recording. The simplest method is to check the liner notes of the recording to see what record label, if any, is listed.

*Note: List of artists, not copyright owners. It is important to note that being unable to identify the copyright owner does not mean that a license is no longer required. Some services can be hired to search for copyright owners. Otherwise, the licensee may want to pick another recording to use.

When did UK licensing laws change
The Licensing Act 2003, which came into force at the end of November 2005, abolished set licensing hours in England and Wales. Opening hours of premises are now set locally through the conditions of individual licences.
When were licensing laws introduced in the UK
The Licensing Act of 1872 and bona fide travellers Under the Act some drinkers became infamous ‘bona fide travellers’, who could be served outside of normal trading hours. The Licensing Act of 1828 An Act to Regulate the granting of Licences to Keepers of Inns, Alehouses, and Victualling Houses, in England.
Example: The CEO has the authority to make decisions and direct the actions of their employees because of their position and role in the organization. A manager may be responsible for their team’s performance and meeting deadlines.
Authority and Responsibility The managers should be able to ensure their tasks are being done without fail. Example: A company manager gives his employees the order to go to work the next day at an item exhibition. Therefore, they are responsible for complying with the request and showing up on time at said event.
A manager needs authority. It makes his position real and gives him the power to order his subordinates and get them to comply. When there is a chain of superior-subordinate relations in an organization, it is the authority which binds and provides a basis for responsibility.
Explanation of the theory – authority, responsibility, and accountability in management – These are the of all managed processes. Authority means
making decisions; telling people what has to be done; clearly defining the task that is assigned.
obligation to perform assigned tasks
accepting responsibility, in relation to job completion; taking personal answerability for results.
These components are interrelated. Authority is the granting of power. Responsibility is the fulfilment of obligation, and accountability is answering for one’s work. Authority can be delegated. Responsibility can be shared but cannot be delegated. Accountability can neither be shared or delegated. One has to answer for their work.
|Can be delegated?||Can be shared?|
Delegating is handing off a part of something that you have. Once you delegate, you should no longer deal with that piece. Sharing is working together on something that you have. Once you share, you are still involved in that piece of work. When you delegate the authority, you give it to another person to perform specific activities. This implicates managers in deciding which work they do themselves and which work they delegate to others (and explaining clearly what has to be done). The opposite of efficient delegation is micromanagement An example of delegation would be a CFO who needs to make a bank transfer, for which they need a new bank account.
The CFO delegates opening a bank account and empowers a member of their team to contact the bank, decide which type of account to open, sign the agreement, and pay the fee. When you share responsibility, you share the workload with your teammates, or peers. You decide together how you share it. For example, the nominated employee has to look into 10 different offers provided by the bank, and see if they meet the appropriate criteria.
They decide to look into the first 5 accounts, and get a colleague to the other 5 options. Getting back to the joke that “product managers have all the responsibility but none of the authority”, this is not necessarily true. Unless you work in an imbalanced process, all managers have enough authority to get things done.
