Temporary Event Notices for the Festive Period 2014

The Christmas and New Year break is fast approaching yet again, so it is time to check your Licence to make sure that you are covered to do what you want to do.

Most Licences should contain an extension for all licensable activities on New Year’s Eve so that you can trade right through to the commencement of normal activities on New Year’s Day, however not all do and it is worth checking.

If you want to extend your hours beyond those within your Licence remember that you will have to apply for a Temporary Event Nnotice. Remember you can apply for a late Temporary Event Notice on five clear working days notice but if the Police or Environmental Health object the late Temporary Event Notice will automatically be refused.

If you think your application is going to be controversial then you should apply for a standard Temporary Event Notice giving 10 clear working days notice.

The rules regarding the duration of a temporary event notice have changed and they can now last for up to 168 hours and the premises can now benefit from a Temporary Event Notice for up to 21 days per year.

Below is a guide to the last dates for applications in respect of the key days over the Christmas period which I hope you will find helpful.
