Vary a club premises certificate

Where a premises licence holder wishes to amend a premises licence, the Licensing Act 2003 allows, in most cases, for an application to vary to be made rather than having to make an application for a new premises licence.

The areas in which a premises licence can be varied include:

  • varying the hours during which a licensable activity is permitted
  • adding or removing licensable activities
  • amending, adding or removing conditions within a licence
  • altering any aspect of the layout of the premises which is shown on the plan

You cannot vary a licence if you need to:
