4. Section D - plans

Plans for premises licence applications

Regulations state that the plan of the premises must be in standard scale, though do not specify what scale that has to be.  We would prefer the scale to be either Standard Scale 1 to 50 or 1 to 100 on either an A4 or A3 sheet.  However, if this causes a difficulty please do not hesitate to speak to us.

The regulations specify the plan must show in all premises:

  1. The extent of the boundary or perimeter of the building
  2. Where the premises include, or consist of, one or more buildings, the location of any external and internal walls of each such building
  3. Where the premises form part of a building, the location of any external and internal walls of the building which are included in the premises
  4. Where the premises are a vessel or part of a vessel, the location of any part of the sides of the vessel, and of any internal walls of the vessel, which are included in the premises
  5. The location of each point of entry to and exit from the premises, including in each case a description of the place from which entry is made or to which the exit leads
