Variation to existing club premises certificates

Variation applications

In order to amend the permitted activities and conditions on your Club Premises Certificate, an application for variation must be made and approved.

 

Please refer to the licence fees, licensing policy and the help and guidance sections of our website when making your application.

 

However, depending on the proposed changes, it may be possible for you to submit a ‘Minor Variation’.

Will tacit consent apply?

Yes, after the 28 day consultation period has expired if no representations have been received from Responsible Authorities or Interested Parties, then the variation is granted as applied for. The amended certificate will be issued to you shortly after.

 

A copy of the application will be provided by the Licensing Unit to the Responsible Authorities by no later than the first working day after the application is received.

Please note: this only related to applications submitted online. You are required to serve a copy of the application, including the accompanying documentation, to the “responsible authorities” on the same day as the application is given to the Licensing Unit if posting the application.

The consultation period is 28 days from receipt of the application. At the end of the consultation period if no representations have been made the licence will be granted and issued with a further 2 weeks.

If relevant representations are made against the application, a hearing will be held within 20 working days after end of consultation period, where the matter will be decided by a Licensing Sub-Committee.

A decision notice will be sent within 10 working days of the determination.

 

Minor Variation applications

In order to make minor amendments to the licensable activities and conditions, an application for a Minor Variation may be submitted.

You must advertise your application for a period of 10 working days starting on the first working day after the application was made to the licensing authority.

During this period, the Licensing Authority will decide to consult which (if any) Responsible Authorities it considers appropriate.

Following this consultation period (consultation period is 14 days from the day after the application is received), a decision must be made by the Licensing Authority within a further 5 working days.

 

Change of club rules / secretary

If there any alterations to the rules or name of the club before an application is determined or after a certificate is issued, the club secretary must give details to the Council.

If a certificate is in place this must be sent to the licensing authority when they are notified.
