(c) If a licensee terminates or fails to renew a license granted under this act or any such license is cancelled, revoked or no longer in use, the license shall be returned physically, with all of the legal rights, privileges and restrictions pertaining thereto, to the licensing authority and the licensing authority may then grant the license to a new applicant to be used at an establishment located within the Westford Valley Marketplace under the same conditions as specified in this act.
