Club premise certificates
Licensing Act applications
Due to the impact of the coronavirus we will only be processing paper applications where an online alternative is not available. Most Licensing Act applications are available online. Applications may take longer than normal to process during this time.
Club premise certificates: 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 (prevention of crime and disorder, public safety, prevention of public nuisance, protection of children from harm).
Note: Some areas may be subject to a Special Cumulative Impact Policy so please check before making your application.
How to apply
Will tacit consent apply?
Yes. If after the 10 working day consultation period has expired and no representations have been made by a responsible authority or interested party, then we will approve the minor variation.
If any representations have been received, we have a further five working days to consider them and will decide whether to approve or reject the application.
If the minor variation is approved, we will issue a notice outlining the minor variation to the premise licence or club premises certificate. We will also issue a new licence or certificate to reflect the minor variation.
The application fee is based on the non-domestic rateable value (NDRV). You will find details on the Home Office website.
