Part 3 – Premises Licences

Section 40 – Review of Licensing Board’s decision to vary or suspend licence

88.This section provides a mechanism by which a licence holder can apply to the Licensing Board to have any variation of their premises licence or the suspension of their premises licence removed. If the Board feels that the sanction in question is no longer necessary then it may remove the relevant sanction. This power applies only to variation or suspension of a premises licence following review.
