Advertising Policy

Advertiser testimonials

“The process of advertising with HCP was very simple and easy. The copy along with images were sent over the HCP and a few weeks late the advertising campaign was in print to the spec agreed. GrowN22 will advertise again in the near future”.  Luke ‘Duke’ Newcombe, Managing Director, GrowN22 C.I.C.

“As an independent community pub, we felt we shared many of the values of the Haringey Community Press so we took a decision to support it by signing up for organisational membership. We distribute the newspaper in our pub. We think readers like the blend of interesting and challenging local stories covered in the HCP. As a result of membership, we get to advertise our pub 6 times a year in the HCP and can buy bigger ads at discounted rates. We hope this helps to draw business to our pub and raise awareness of what we do in the wider community.” Nick Allaway, Antwerp Arms

Licence adverts

What is a business licence?

A business licence is any kind of licence or permit a business is required to have by law, as stated by their government, in order to conduct certain trade activities. In the UK local authorities are in charge of issuing licences. They give businesses permission to do things like sell alcohol, play recorded music, allow gambling and stay open until late at night.

Who needs a business licence?

It’s always a good idea to check if your business needs a business licence. Conveniently, the UK government website has a licence finder to check this! Just go to and enter the relevant details. Businesses under certain categories will need a business licence; these include selling alcohol, certain financial activities (such as lending money), playing recorded music in public, running a business for HGV driver training or driving instructors and processing customer data. Licences are not required for all businesses, but you should make sure to check.

How to apply for a business licence

The specific application process depends on the licence you are applying for. Most commonly, you will need to apply through your local council using their website or by contacting them directly. We would advise you to use the UK government licence finder, which will give you specific directions on the best place to find and apply for your licence. Go through the application steps on your local council website (or the website you have been directed to) and you will be able to apply for your licence.

How to advertise your licence

A lot of licence application processes ask you to advertise your licence in your local newspaper. This will just be publishing the text contained in your licence as a small advertisement. Some local newspapers now only publish online or monthly in print but, luckily, some councils now allow businesses to publish your licence notice via email newsletters. If you are hoping to do this, then always double check that your council will accept it in your case. Be careful to arrange your licence to be published quickly, as you usually have a time limit of only ten days to have your advert published!
