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.
