Last minute Licensing Changes!

In the final throes of the current Parliament, the Deregulation Act 2014 has received Royal assent. The most important changes are the deregulation of live music in licensed premises, the increase in the number of Temporary Event Notices per year to 15 and the abolition of the requirement to renew a personal licence. And of course the news that everyone has been waiting for – it is no longer an offence to sell liqueur chocolates to children!

For more detailed advice as to how the changes will affect your licensed premises, please contact us via our contact page, call us on 01245 216 888 or email [email protected].
