From the Dover Mercury, 14 July 2005.

Licensees lag on applications.

WITH less than a month to go to the deadline, nearly 500 licensees throughout the district have yet to submit applications for new licences.

And district council officials are warning that unless the new licences are in force by November 24, they will have to stop trading.

Applications for existing licences to be transferred or new ones issued under the new licensing regulations have to be in by August 6. But so far, the council has received only 155 of an estimated 650 applications.

The new premises licence consolidates a number of licences previously held in respect of the sale of alcohol, provision of food and drink to the public after 11pm, public entertainment, cinemas and theatres.

Licensees can apply for a conversion of their licences that will allow them to trade as they are now. They can also apply to vary their licence either at the same time or at any time after the application has been approved.

“There may be a number of reasons why licensees have not submitted their applications,” said Tony Bartlett, the council’s licensing manager.

“The fact remains that unless a valid application is received by August 6, licensees will have to apply as if they were new premises. If a licence is not in force by November 24 they will have to cease trading.”
