The City of Durham Parish Council is currently inviting bids to carry out a one-time piece of research into the current and permitted operating hours of all licenced premises within the City of Durham Parish Council boundary area.
The Parish Council requires the production of an evidence document which illustrates any discrepancies between approved operating hours in planning permissions, approved opening hours in licensing permissions, opening hours advertised on premises’ websites and opening hours in practice for approximately. 163 licensed premises in Durham City.
A full list of all licenced premises within the City and their respective addresses will be provided by the Parish Council.
This work will require the compilation of a chart with 5 headings:
• licenced premises name and address
• published operating hours of the premises (on internet/front door)
• operating hours in planning permission document(s)
• operating hours in licensing permission document(s)
• additional brief information (only where required)
This research will involve the effective use of several online resources, e.g., research on internet into published opening hours of premises, research on Durham County Council planning portal into opening hours in planning permissions as well as potential visits to the Council’s Licensing Department at Annand House (DH7 8RS) to go over any licensing documentation for premises.
The work may also include some visits to licensed premises whose opening hours are not available online.
All bids should include a fixed fee for producing this document as well as time expected to be spent on its production. All bids should be submitted to the Parish Clerk by no later than 5pm on Wednesday 24th May 2023 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
All bids should be supplemented by evidence that the individual has a research background, has experience of data management, is able to navigate their way around the Council’s online planning portal and is proficient in the use of Microsoft office tools e.g. Word, Excel, etc.
In addition, knowledge of Durham County Council planning and other procedures would be an advantage.
It is hoped that this document may be produced by no later than mid-July 2023 but the Council is able to be flexible with this deadline.
Should you have any queries about the bid process, please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Clerk Adam Shanley via email at email@example.com
