Personal and Premises licence

Surrender of premises licence

If you hold a Premises Licence and you wish to surrender it, you need to give us notice to that effect. There is no fee for this procedure.

The notice must be accompanied by the Premises Licence or, if that is not possible, a statement of the reasons for the failure to provide the Licence.

The Premises Licence will lapse with immediate effect on receipt of a valid notification under Section 28 Licensing Act 2003 by the Licensing Authority.

In some circumstances, a Premises Licence that has been surrendered can be reinstated.
