Wednesday June 08, 2005 Licensing Act implications.

Share |
News Image
Few licensed premises have so far applied for new licenses.
Under the new Licensing Act ALL premises that sell alcohol must apply to their local council for a new licence by August. Any that miss the deadline will lose their 'grandfather', or unconditionally granted, rights, making any subsequent application much more difficult.

This rule applies to community centres, village halls etc. and licenses have to be renewed even if there is no change in opening hours.

If you think that you may be affected, and are based in the area served by West Wiltshire District Council, please contact Maggie Jones (e-mail as soon as possible. The alternative could be "a club with no beer"!!
