This application can be used for very small variations. We strongly recommend that you speak to a Licensing Officer on 01903 737755 before submitting this type of application because if there are representations against the application you will need to make an application under section 34 or section 17 which will add time to the application process and unecessary expense. A minor variation request is accepted at the discretion of the licensing officer.
