Welcome to the site for the Central Licensing Administration Unit (CLAU). We work on behalf of the Northants Licensing Partnership to deliver an application processing service for entertainment and alcohol licensing, gambling licensing, animal welfare licensing, houses in multiple occupation and other regulatory licensing managed by Environmental Services. With effect from 1 July 2019, the partner authorities we support are: Corby Borough Council, East Northamptonshire Council, Kettering Borough Council and the Borough Council of Wellingborough.

See the links below for details of the applications we administer and to guide you through our application processes.
