Section 35 – Variation on transfer
80.This section allows persons applying for transfer of a premises licence also to apply at the same time for a variation to the terms and conditions of the premises licence. The provisions in sections 29 and 30 relating to applications and determinations of variation applications will apply to applications for variations under this section.
81.Subsection (3) caters for the case in which a proposed transfer may depend on a variation being obtained to the licence. Where the person seeking the transfer makes it clear that this is the case, the Board must determine the application for variation prior to determining the application for transfer. If the variation is refused there is no need to proceed with the transfer application.
