Premises licence: Minor variation applications

This process can only be used where the variations will not adversely impact on the promotion of any of the four licensing objectives which are: the prevention of crime and disorder, public safety, prevention of public nuisance and protection of children from harm.

Before you apply

There are six areas in the city affected by our Special Cumulative Impact Policy. If your premises is in one of these areas please contact LicensingAct2003@liverpool.gov.uk before you apply.

Giving notice

Your application must be advertised on your premises.

How much?

The application fee is £89.

What happens next?

If, after a 10 working day consultation period, no representation has been made by a responsible authority or interested party we will approve your application and email you a notice outlining the minor variation, along with a new premises licence and summary or club premises certificate.

If any representations have been received, we have a further five working days to consider them and decide whether to approve or reject the application.
