If a premises licence holder wishes to change the named Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) an application must be submitted.
A change of DPS would be required if the current DPS leaves the business. A new DPS would be required in order to continue operating legally.
The prospective DPS must be a personal licence holder.
The application to change the DPS can take immediate effect or take effect on a specified date. If the application seeks to take immediate effect, the new DPS can take on their role during the consultation period.
- premises licence (original must be returned)
- Designated Premises Supervisor consent form (to be completed by the proposed designated supervisor)
The consent form should be uploaded as part of the application. If you are unable to do so the original signed copy should be sent, with the premises licence, to:
Wallasey Town Hall
The application is not deemed to be received until the consent form has been received.
If an individual wishes to be removed as a DPS, a notification should be completed:
Processing and timescales
The consultation period for applications is 14 days starting on the day on which the application is received.

If no objection notice is received, the application will be granted and an updated premises licence will be issued.
