COVID-19 is a public health emergency. Everyone needs to assess and manage the risks of COVID-19, and, in particular, businesses should consider the risks to their workers and customers. Operators have a legal responsibility to protect workers and others from risk to their health and safety and therefore must make sure that a risk assessment for their licensed premises addresses the risks of COVID-19, using the government guidance to inform decisions and control measures.
The HSE have produced some risk assessment guidance and templates here. Once completed, it may be beneficial to submit your risk assessments to [email protected] for consideration by the responsible authorities.
A premises licence is required to authorise the us of any place or a part of any premises for licensable activities. Licensable activities include the sale or supply of alcohol, the provision of regulated entertainment and the provision of late night refreshment (the supply of hot food or drink between 11pm and 5am).
How much will it cost to apply?
The fee for a premises licence is determined by the non-domestic rateable value of the premises. Check your non-domestic rateable value at the Valuation Office Agency website.
