Pendle Borough Council

Personal licence (alcohol)

Welcome to

The sale or supply of alcohol must be carried out or authorised by the holder of a personal licence in accordance with the Licensing Act 2003, unless a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) has been served.  A Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) must hold a personal licence.

Applying for a Personal Licence

To obtain a Personal Licence, you must be over 18, live in the borough, have an approved qualification and provide a criminal record check.  Provided these requirements are met, a licence will be issued.

Personal Licences last for 10 years from the date of issue.  Although you can only obtain a licence from the local authority in the area you live, it is valid anywhere in the country.

The fee for a Personal Licence is £37.  Cheques should be made payable to 'Borough of Pendle'

Your right of appeal

You can appeal a licence refusal or any conditions to which a licence is subject through a Magistrates' Court.
