Variations, Minor Variations, Transfers & Changes of DPS

Once a permission is granted the holder can apply to make changes to the licence. There are several changes you can apply for:

Changes such as  the permitted hours and activities on the permission would be thought of as a variation.  In these instances,  the cost is the same, and will need to be applied by making a new application via the Premises Licence & Club Premises Certificates page.

  • Minor layout
