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 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.
