Licensing Act 2003 - premises licence
Apply for a premises alcohol licence.
What is a premises licence?
A premises licence authorises the use of any premises (vehicle, vessel or moveable structure or any place or a part of any premises), for licensable activities. A single licence covers all activities. However, if alcohol is sold or supplied a personal licence holder and a designated premises supervisor are a mandatory requirement.
Licensable activities include the following:
- sale by retail of alcohol
- a performance of a play
- an exhibition of a film
- an indoor sporting event
- a boxing or wrestling entertainment
- a performance of live music
- any playing of recorded music
- any entertainment of a similar description to that falling within the performance of live music, the playing of recorded music and dancing
- late night refreshment (hot food or hot drink between 11pm and 5am)
