Licensing and permits

Club premise certificates: New applications

Club premises certificates authorise qualifying clubs to use club premises for qualifying club activities such as:

  • The supply of alcohol by or on behalf of a club to a member for consumption on the premises.
  • The retail sale of alcohol by or on behalf of a club to a guest of a member for consumption on the premises, and the provision of regulated entertainment by or on behalf of a club for its members or their guests.

How to apply

Please read the guidance notes before applying for a club premises certificate. Then download and complete the application form and declaration. Return both to the address on the forms.

Will tacit consent apply?

Yes. After the 28-day consultation period has expired, if no representations have been received from Responsible Authorities or interested parties, then the licence is granted as applied for. We will issue the licence shortly after.

If there is a representation from a responsible authority or interested party then this will cause the application to be considered by the Licensing Sub Committee. A hearing will be arranged within 56 days from the date the application is made.


The application fee is based on the non-domestic rateable value (NDRV) and details are listed in the guidance notes above or on the Home Office website.
