Will tacit consent apply?

Yes. The application may take effect immediately or on a date specified in the application form and revised premises licence and licence summary will be issued to you.

If the Chief Officer of Police for the area where the premises is situated is satisfied that the exceptional circumstances of the case are such that granting the application would undermine the crime prevention objective, he must give a notice of this to the Licensing Authority within 14 days. The Licensing Authority will then hold a hearing to determine the notice given by the police.

To transfer a premises licence to you from the existing licence holder, you must apply to formally amend the licence.
