Varying a Licence

How to vary the Designated Premises Supervisor

The holder of a premises licence may apply to the licensing authority to vary a premises licence to specify a new individual to be the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS). You can apply online to vary the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) on your licence.

If you wish to make a paper application you will need to complete 2 forms.

  • Application to vary the Designated Premises Supervisor. This form must be completed by the current premises licence holder.
  • Consent to being named the Designated Premises Supervisor. This form must be completed by the ingoing DPS.

Please contact the licensing section if you require these forms.

The premises licence and summary must be enclosed with the application to the licensing authority so that it can be amended. These must be the originals. If it is not possible to supply them, please include a statement of the reasons for the failure to provide the licence in part 2 of the form. You may be required to apply for a duplicate licence.

The fee payable to the local Authority is £23. All cheques must be made payable to Erewash Borough Council, or contact the Contact Centre on 01159072244 to make a card payment.

An existing Designated Premises Supervisor can also inform the licensing authority that he or she wishes to be officially removed from a premises licence if they want to cease responsibility for the sale of alcohol at those premises.

Section 41 of the Licensing Act 2003 sets out the procedure where an individual who is named as a Designated Premises Supervisor in respect of any licensed premises wishes to cease to have that position. An individual in this instance must give the licensing authority a notice or request to be removed as DPS to that effect if they wish to be removed from a premises licence.
