Please read our information about a provisional statement before you apply.

How to apply

You can apply for a provisional statement online. 

You'll need to give:

  • your details and explain your interest in the premises
  • the licensable activities the premises will be used for
  • the timings you would want to apply for - this section is optional
  • a detailed plan of the works to be done at the premises.  You can find out more about this in our guidance for plans
  • details of the steps that you will take to promote the four licensing objectives - these will be attached to your licence as conditions and you may find our GN6 guidance helpful with this


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 for this application.  Please make sure you are aware of how much this will cost.
