New Club Premises Certificate

A Club Premises Certificate issued under the Licensing Act 2003, allows 'Qualifying Clubs' to supply alcohol and conduct other 'Qualifying Club Activities' from the premises for members and their 'bona fide guests'.

The application process for a new club premises certificate, or the variation of an existing club premises certificate, is the same as a premises licence and subject to the same full consultation and advertisement process.

See the Premises Licence Guidance Notes page.

Under normal circumstances the entire process will take 2 months from application to issue of the certificate.
