Club Premises Certificate

A club premises certificate permits you to carry out one or more of the following licensable activities:-

  • The supply of alcohol to members of a club
  • The sale of alcohol to guests of members
  • The provision of regulated entertainment
  • Application must be made to the Local Authority in whose area your premises are situated. As a guide please use the Direct Gov link and enter the postcode of the premises you wish to licence.

    Experience has shown that Clubs often get this wrong and leave themselves open to legal challenge in the way that they operate. At WLS we will ensure that your application will meet legal requirements in the way you wish your private members club to operate including hiring out function rooms etc

    At WLS we want to ensure that this process runs smoothly for you, as a minimum we will assist you in completion of the application form and discuss with you how the operating schedule should be structured to address the 4 licensing objectives. If necessary we will liaise with the relevant responsible authorities prior to submission of the application to ensure their needs are met. It is important to get this part right as this will then negate the need for any hearing which can be costly and will delay the grant of the Club Premises Certificate. We will then advise you on who to send the applications to and wording for the necessary legal notices etc. If you wish we can complete the whole process for you.
