Premises licences that include the sale of alcohol must name a person to be the designated premises supervisor (DPS). The DPS will be responsible for authorising the alcohol sales at the premises.

To be able to act as DPS they must hold a personal licence.

This means that when an application is made for a new premises licence or to change the DPS named on an existing licence the proposed DPS must give their consent to this.

How to give consent

The DPS will need to complete this part of the application. 

There are certain responsibilities when acting as a DPS. This means that before you can be named as DPS on a premises licence you'll need to give your consent and agree to this.

You can do this online.
