Community premises can apply to have a specific condition removed from their premises licence, which would otherwise require them to have a designated premises supervisor.

Apply to remove requirement for designated premises supervisor

Only the management committee of a community premises can apply for this removal, with the names of the committee's key officers required as part of the application.

The licensing authority must be satisfied that arrangements for the management of the premises by the committee or board are sufficient to ensure the adequate supervision of the supply of alcohol on the premises.

Community premises applying for a new premises licence

If you want to apply for authorisation for the sale of alcohol for the first time, you should include your application to remove the requirement for a DPS and personal licence at the same time. No fee is required beyond the fee for the new application or variation, both of which are based on rateable value.
