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 (opens in a new tab) 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.

Payment by debit card can be made by clicking the button below (please note that credit cards are not accepted)

Apply for a minor variation

1. Send us a completed minor variation application form with the current fee of £89.

2. Immediately send a copy to Leicestershire Police. See "contact details for the responsible authorities" for contact details.

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. The white notice template can be downloaded below.

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 variation application form.

2. Pay the relevant fee

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. The blue notice template can be downloaded below.

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 and 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.
