Vary a premises licence
This page is about varying a premises licence.
How a premises licence can be varied
You can vary an existing premises licence in any of the following ways:
- minor variations
- full variations.
Use amendments for small administrative changes, for example, a change of address for the licence holder or designated premises supervisor.
Amendments cost £10.50.
Use minor variations for changes to the plans or to the licensable activities, times and conditions of the premises licence, for example, a reduction in trading hours.
We recommend you contact the licensing department in advance to discuss your proposal.
There's a consultation period of 10 working days for minor variations.
You must advertise the application with a white notice at the premises. There's a template available for white notices.
Minor variations cost £89.
Read the guidance on minor variations for more information.
Use full variations for all other changes.
There's a 28 day consultation period for full variations.
Full variation costs vary depending on the rateable value.
