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.
Premises licence: Variation applications
There may be a reason why you wish to vary a premises licence, such as to include further licensable activities or alter existing activities and operating times allowed by the premises licence.
Note: Some areas may be subject to a Special Cumulative Impact Policy so please check before making your application.
Before you apply
Please read the guidance notes before applying for a variation of a premises licence. The notes explain policy issues, fees, how to complete the application and the required notification of the application. We advise you to speak to the Licensing Unit before making your application.
List of model conditions
We have produced a list of model conditions to help you draft the contents of your operating schedule in your application. The schedule should set out the steps you will take to promote the four licensing objectives if your application is granted.
How to apply
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.
