Apply for a licence variation

Licences for premises and club premises certificates can be varied at any time.

Minor variations are a useful way of making small changes to licences where there will be no impact on the Licensing Objectives. You can check minor variation guidance to see whether the changes you want to make can be done by a minor variation, or whether you will need to make a full variation.

How to apply

Apply for a minor variation

1. Send us a completed minor variation application form with the current fee of £89 which can be paid by:

  • using our online payment system below (please reference your premises licence number when making payment)
  • telephone conversation with a Customer Service Advisor
  • cheque payable to Melton Borough Council

2. Display a completed white notice outside your premises for 10 working days to make people aware, in case they wish to make a representation. Please contact licensing@melton.gov.uk for a white notice template.

We will process the application and let you know the outcome once the time for representations has passed.

Apply for a full variation

1. Send us a completed form variation application form.

2. Pay the fee which can be paid by:

  • using our online payment system below (please reference your premises licence number when making payment)
  • telephone conversation with a Customer Service Advisor
  • cheque payable to Melton Borough Council

3. Immediately send a copy of your application to all the Responsible Authorities.

4. Display a completed blue notice outside your premises for 28 days and put a copy of this notice in the local newspaper within the first 10 working days. Please contact licensing@melton.gov.uk for a blue notice template.

5. If you are varying from a club certificate, or from a licence without alcohol on, to one with alcohol sales, you must also provide:

  • a completed vary designated premises supervisor (DPS) application form
  • a completed designated premises supervisor (DPS) consent form

 

Once the 28-day consultation period has passed, we will either grant the licence if no representations have been made, or convene a hearing of the Licensing Committee, to which you would be invited, to decide the application.

Application forms are available on the government website via the external links at the bottom of this page.
