Vary a gambling premises licence

An existing gambling premises licence can be varied to add, amend or remove conditions or hours permitted by the licence.

A licence can also be varied to amend another detail of the licence such as the layout of the premises.

There is a 28 day consultation period when you apply to vary a premises licence. If no objections are received at the end of this period the application will be granted and we then aim to issue your licence within 10 working days.

As with applications for a new licence, you need to advertise your application.

Each of the responsible authorities also need to be notified of the application using a template form provided by the Gambling Commission - Form A must be used when there is only one applicant, for two or more applicants use Form B.

The application will be granted after 28 days if no representations are received. If representations are received a committee hearing can be held to determine the application, assuming outstanding issues cannot be resolved.
