Please read our information about full variations before you apply.

How to apply

You can apply for a full variation to your club premises certificate online.  

You'll need to give:

  • an explanation of the variation
  • a detailed plan if you are changing the layout of the premises.  You can find out more about this in our guidance for plans
  • details of any further steps you'll take to promote the four licensing objectives - these will be attached to your licence as conditions and you may find our Pool of Conditions - 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 that's based on the rateable value of the premises.  Please make sure you are aware of how much this will cost.
