Vary a club premises certificate

You can apply to amend a club premises certificate to alter licensable activities. This includes:

  • the supply of alcohol
  • providing regulated entertainment
  • providing late night refreshment

There are two types of variation application. Refer to government guidance to find out what type of application you need.

Full variation or minor variation

If your changes impact the licensing objectives, you should apply for a full variation.

You may apply for a minor variation to make small changes to your club premises certificate. These changes must have no adverse impact on the licensing objectives.
