A Premises Licence is a permanent licence, granted in respect of a specific location, that authorises the licence holder to carry out a combination of licensable activities.
Licensable activities include:
- the sale by retail of alcohol
- the supply of alcohol by a club to club members and guests
- the provision of regulated entertainment, including plays, films, indoor sports, music and dancing
- the provision of entertainment facilities
- the sale of late night refreshment - hot food or drink supplied between 11pm and 5am
Premises Licences may also be used in respect of one-off events at which more than 500 people are expected to attend. A temporary event notice may be more appropriate for smaller one-off events.
Our statement of licensing policy says how we make decisions on applications under the Licensing Act 2003. This includes how we apply the 4 licensing objectives of:
- the prevention of crime and disorder
- public safety
- the prevention of public nuisance
- the protection of children from harm
