Explanatory Memorandum to Licensing (Indoor Arenas) (Northern Ireland) Order 2004

Article 6: Temporary continuance of business

This Article makes special provision for indoor arenas by adding a new paragraph (2A) to Article 29 of the principal Order. The new paragraph relates to circumstances where the holder of a licence is unable to carry on business at the indoor arena and applies to a court for the authorisation to continue business temporarily in other premises.  The new provision permits a court to consider the application even though the temporary premises do not fully meet the definition of “indoor arena” in Article 2A of the Order.  For example, the temporary premises may be unable to seat 5000 people.
