Application

Apply for a minor variation to a Club Premises licence

Small variations to cllub pemises licences, that will not impact adversely on the licensing objectives, can be applied for by a simplified 'minor variation' process. This process is cheaper, easier and quicker than the full variation version and can be used for changes such as:

  • small changes to the structure or layout of the premises,
  • the addition of authorisation for late night refreshment or regulated entertainment,
  • small changes to licensing hours (not relating to alcohol),
  • revisions, removals and additions of conditions.

The minor variation process cannot be used to:

  • add the sale by retail or supply of alcohol to a licence or certificate,
  • extend the licensing hours for the sale or supply of alcohol at any time between 11pm and 7am,
  • increase the amount of time on any day during which alcohol may be sold by retail or supplied,
  • extend the period for which the licence or certificate has effect,
  • transfer the licence or certificate from one premises to another, or vary substantially the premises to which it relates,
  • specify, in a premises licence, an individual as the premises supervisor,
  • disapply the mandatory conditions relating to a designated premises supervisor.

Under the minor variation process the applicant is not required to advertise the variation in a newspaper or copy it to responsible authorities. However, they must display it on white notice, on the premises for a period of 10 working days starting on the day after the minor variation application was given to the Licensing Authority.

Upon receipt of a minor variation application, the licensing authority will consider whether the variation could impact adversely on the licensing objectives, and will consult the relevant responsible authorities. The licensing authority will also consider any representations made by interested parties made within 10 working days starting the day after the application was received by the licensing authority. There is no right to a hearing, but the licensing authority must take any relevant representations into account in arriving at a decision. The licensing authority must determine the application, once the consultation period has lapsed, but no later than 15 working days, starting the day after the application was received by the licensing authority, with effect either that:

  • the minor variation is granted: or
  • the application is refused.
