Minor variations to premises licences and club premises certificates

We are currently experiencing a large number of telephone calls into the service with queries.

If you need to contact us, at the moment we would appreciate an email setting out your enquiry. For general licensing matters, the email address is licensing@derby.gov.uk.

If you still feel you need to leave a telephone answer message, please note that we will prioritise your call and may not be able to respond to you if your enquiry could be resolved by visiting the website.

The government has amended the Licensing Act 2003 to allow minor variations to premises licences and club premises certificates.

Minor variations will usually fall into one of four categories:

  • minor changes to the structure or layout of the premises
  • small adjustments to licensing hours
  • the removal of out of date, irrelevant or unenforceable conditions or the addition of volunteered conditions.
  • the addition of certain licensable activities.

In all cases the overall test is whether the proposals could impact adversely on any of the four licensing objectives.
