Varying of a premises or conditions on a licence
Do you want to extend your opening hours, incorporate an outside area, or vary the layout of your premises? Do you want to be able to put on additional activities? If so, you may need to make an application to vary your licence, as operating outside of the terms of your licence will put your business at risk.
Depending on the degree of change, you may need to apply for a full variation, 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 any further information on any of the above points or to discuss your licence please contact a member of the licencing team on T: 0115 9888 777 or E: firstname.lastname@example.org
