Please read our information about club premises certificates before you apply.

How to apply

You can apply for a club premises certificate online.

You'll need to let us know:

  • your club premises details and the name and address of the club secretary
  • the licensable activities you want to provide at the premises and the times when you would like to be able to provide them
  • your opening hours
  • a detailed plan of the premises - you can find out more about this in our guidance for plans
  • the steps that you will take to promote the four licensing objectives - these will be attached to your certificate as conditions and you may find our GN6 guidance helpful with this
  • a copy of the club rules

Club declaration

You also need to give us a declaration of your qualifying club status.  

You will need to complete this declaration of club status online at the same time as your application for a club premises certificate.


You must put up public notices at the premises with details of the application.  

A copy of that notice must also be advertised in a local newspaper.

More information and a template to follow are in our guidance for the display of notices.


You'll be charged a fee that's based on the rateable value of the premises.  Please make sure you are aware of how much this will cost.
