A premises licence is the most common type of licence for a venue to apply for. It allows for the sale of alcohol, the provision of regulated entertainment and the sale of hot food and drink between 11pm and 5am.
Many premises will apply for these licences, including pubs, restaurants, off licences, supermarkets, cinemas and many others.
The Premises Licence must be displayed clearly on the premises concerned.
The Licensing Act 2003 has established a single regime for all licensed premises. Under the Act, local councils regulate four licensable activities:
- The sale of alcohol
- The supply of alcohol
- The provision of regulated entertainment
- The provision of late night refreshments (after 11pm)
Licensing authorities are responsible for administering the act in their areas. This includes issuing licences and working with the police and other authorities. They have four main objectives when carrying out their role:
- Prevention of crime and disorder
- Prevention of public nuisance
- Public safety
- Protection of children from harm
