As well as a Premises Licence, 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.
To obtain a Personal Licence, you must:
- be over 18
- live in the borough
- have an approved qualification
- provide a criminal record check
- provide proof of your right to work in the UK
If all these requirements are met, we will issue a licence.
Personal Licences last indefinitely, but will no longer be valid if you lose the right to work in the UK. 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.
You can appeal a licence refusal or any conditions to which a licence is subject through a Magistrates' Court.
