Please read our information about sex establishment licences and our sex establishment licensing policy before you apply. 

How to apply

If you hold a sex establishment licence and you want to make changes to that licence then you'll need to apply for a variation.

This could be a proposed change to the hours, a change to the conditions of the licence or a change to the premises itself. 

To apply you'll need to fill in the application form and send this to us.

A full copy must also be sent to:

Licensing Department
Devon & Cornwall Constabulary
Launceston Police Station
Moorland Road
PL15 7HY

If you just want to tell us that, as licence holder, you've changed your name or address this is a different application. 


You must put up public notices at the premises giving 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 for sex establishments.


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