Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005

Section 47 – Temporary premises licence

103.This section caters for the circumstances where premises which already have a premises licence are undergoing reconstruction or conversion work. The licence holder may want to move into temporary premises pending completion of the work. This section allows the licence holder to apply to the Licensing Board for a premises licence covering the temporary premises. Such a licence is referred to as a “temporary premises licence”.

104.Subsections (5) and (6) confirm the maximum duration of temporary premises licences issued under this section and establish that those licence conditions which were attached to the original application for the premises licence would apply to the temporary premises licence, subject to any exceptions or modification which the Licensing Board may provide for.
