The new person you wish to appoint as the designated premises supervisor (DPS) must be a personal licence holder.
This allows community premises (e.g. village halls) to apply for the requirement to have a DPS to be removed. The management committee would then be collectively responsible for alcohol sales.
This application can be made either with a new/variation application for a premises licence or to an existing premises licence.
How to apply
Specify an individual as DPS
DPS to be disapplied
Request to be removed as DPS
Consent to be DPS
You can also apply by downloading an application form and sending it to the licensing department. If you apply by this method you will also need to send a copy of the application form to the chief officer of Police.
The fee for the variation/removal of a community premises Designated Premises Supervisor is £23.
What happens next
The application may take effect immediately or on a date specified in the application form. We will issue you with a revised premises licence and licence summary.
If the Chief Officer of Police for the area where the premises is situated is satisfied that the exceptional circumstances of the case are such that granting the application would undermine the crime prevention objective, he must give a notice of this to the licensing authority within 14 days. We will then hold a hearing to determine the notice given by the Police.
