Please read our information about minor variations before you apply.

How to apply

If you want to apply for a minor variation to your club premises certificate then you can do this 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.  

More information and a template to follow are in our guide for minor variations.


You'll be charged a fee for this application.  Please make sure you are aware of how much this will cost.
