Variations To Premises Licence

A variation to a premises licence takes place when a business owner needs to make changes to the operation of their business.

Once you hold a premises licence you may need to make changes to it, and you can do that by way or a variation application. There are two types of variation:

A major variation to a premises licence would be required if a business owner wants to open or sell alcohol for longer hours or is increasing the size of their premises. The application follows the same process as that for a new premises licence, for example it takes 28 days to be granted and it must be advertised in the local area.

A minor variation is a simplified process that allows changes to be made to a premises licence that do not present any kind of risk and are not considered contentious. Examples would be a change to the internal layout of the premises or to add conditions that have been agreed with the authorities.
