Removing the requirement to have a designated premises supervisor

Application for the mandatory alcohol condition under licensing Act 2003 requiring a designated premises supervisor in respect of a premises licence to be disapplied

Certain community premises which have, or are applying for, a premises licence can apply to have the mandatory condition which requires alcohol sales to be authorised by a designated premises supervisor disapplied.

Such an application may only be made if the licence holder is, or is to be, a committee or board of individuals with responsibility for the management of the premises (the 'management committee').

Community premises are defined as premises that are, or form part of, a church hall, chapel hall, community hall or other similar building.

Application can be made at the time of applying for the premises licence, or at a later date once the licence has been granted.
