Provisional licensing statement

Find out if your business is likely to obtain a premises licence before committing to the cost of developing a site.

Overview

A provisional statement allows you to assess whether you’re likely to obtain a full premises licence before you commit to the cost of developing a site. 

It can be obtained where the premises has not yet been constructed, extended or altered for licensable activities. 

If a provisional statement has been granted, we’re obliged to disregard any representations received against a subsequent application for a premises licence (so long as the application is substantially the same).
