Clubs are organisations where members have joined together for particular social, sporting or political purposes. They may then combine to buy alcohol in bulk as members of the organisation to supply in the club.
Fees are based on the non-domestic rateable value of your premises.
Applications must be advertised for a period of no less than 28 consecutive days, starting on the day after the application was given to the licensing authority.
Applicants are required to advertise their application according to the relevant regulations:
Use the template notice to advertise your application:
- a plan of the premises
- a copy of the club rules
- a declaration form
Processing and timescales
The consultation period for applications is 28 days from receipt of the application. If representations are received during this period your application will go to a hearing which will take place within 20 working days from the end of the consultation period.
If no representations are received, the club premises certificate will be granted and issued.
Legislation and guidance
If an application is refused following a hearing, appeals may be made to a Magistrates' Court within 21 days of the decision to refuse.
