Premises Licence Application
When running a business that involves a licensable activity, normally selling alcohol, you need to apply to the Council where your business is located for a Premises Licence.
A Premises Licence authorises you to sell alcohol from those premises.
Our Licensing Manager, Tony Dales, has 15 years’ experience in dealing with the Police, Licensing Authorities and other agencies involved when a Premises Licence is required.
Licensable activities are defined as:
- Selling Alcohol by retail
- Supply of alcohol in club premises
- Providing late night refreshment (hot food or drink between 12 midnight and 5am) and
- Provision of regulated entertainment such as Theatre, Plays, Pop concerts etc
Your local council have a process that requires completion before a licence is issued.
You will need to show that your premises and how they are run, will not adversely affect the 4 licensing objectives. These are:
- Protection of Children from Harm
- Prevention of Crime and Disorder
- Prevention of Public Nuisance
- Public Safety
You will also need to provide notices for the public and to the local newspaper, as well as submit planning drawings.
This process can be complex. Our licensing experts will use their knowledge to smooth the path to allow you the time to prepare for the practicalities of running your business.
