Which authorisation do we need?
The majority of licence holders that require a licence will require a Premises Licence.
Only those that operate as Clubs and meet certain criteria would be eligible to apply for a Club Premises Certificate. Further details about each may be accessed on the tool bar to the left.
Whichever authorisation you require the application process may take up to two months.
Community premises wishing to apply for a premises licence that does not authorise the retail of alcohol may do so free of charge.
It is a requirement that all applications are advertised in the local press. The licence applicant must pay the cost of the advert. Please contact the relevant local paper for the area in which the premises to confirm the cost of your advert.
A blue notice will need to be displayed outside the premises to which the application relates continuously during the 28 day consultation period following submission of an application.
Please note that if you are holding a one off event, then a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) may be a better alternative for you.
