If you wish to make changes to your club premises certificate, such as to include further licensable activities or alter the operating times, layout or conditions, you can apply for a variation.

There is a 28 day consultation period when you apply to vary a club premises certificate.

If no objections are received at the end of this period the application will be granted and we aim to issue your licence within 10 working days.

Some very small changes to your certificate can be made on a minor variation application.
