Premises licence changes - minor variation

What is this licence for?

A minor variation to a premises licence is defined as one that would not impact on any of the licensing objectives:

  • The prevention of crime and disorder
  • Public safety
  • The prevention of public nuisance
  • The protection of children from harm

The minor variation process can be used for any of the following:

  • Minor changes to the structure or layout of a premises.
  • Small adjustments to the licensing hours (but not to extend the hours for the sale or supply of alcohol at any time between 11pm and 7am, increase the amount of time on any day during which alcohol may be sold by retail or supplied, and/or add the sale or supply of alcohol to the licence).
  • Removal of irrelevant or unenforceable conditions.
  • Adding certain licensable activities, for example live music.
