Variations to Conditions

Running a licensed premise requires compliance with all the conditions on the licence.  Some are mandatory and these cannot be changed, however, there are often additional conditions which relate specifically to the premises in question.  If you wish to change any aspect of your licence or club certificate once it has been granted, you will need to apply to your local council for either a full or a minor variation.

The full variation process is very similar to the application process for a new premises licence and the fee is the same. You should use this process if you want to make a substantial change to your licence, for example, increasing the hours when you sell alcohol.
If you want to make a small, low-risk change to your premises licence, you may be able to use the minor variation process. This is cheaper and quicker than the full variation application.

Small changes could include:
removing a licensable activity
reducing the hours you sell alcohol 
making small changes to the layout of your premises 

If you apply for a minor variation and your application is rejected, you will not be able to appeal. However, you can reapply using the full variation process. We can assist you with any applications, and can advise you in relation to the best approach.

For further information on any of the above points or to discuss your licence in detail please contact the licensing team on T: 0115 9888 777 or E: licencing@fraserbrown.com
