Premise Licence Applications

There are a number of reasons why you may need a premise licence, these are called Licensable Activities and are as follows:

  • The sale of alcohol by retail
  • The supply of alcohol by or on behalf of a club to, or to the order of a member of the club
  • The provision of regulated entertainment
  • The provision of late night refreshment

If you do, or intend to do any of the above then you will need a Premise Licence.

Application Process

Each application has a strict set of rules that must be met, these include:

  • A plan of the premises
  • A DPS (Designated Premises Supervisory) who holds a Personal Licence
  • A completed application form (approximately 25 pages long)
  • Details of how you will meet each of the 4 Licensing Objectives
  • Provide a copy of the application to 8 Responsible Authorities
  • Display a formal notice on the premises
  • Advertise the application in a local newspaper
  • Liaise with each of the Responsible Authorities in relation to any objections or proposed conditions
