Section 29: Consent required for alterations to premises

This section introduces a new Article 12A to the Clubs Order (Consent required for certain alterations to premises). The provision requires a registered club to obtain the consent of a court before making certain specified alterations to its premises, as is already the case for licensed premises under the provisions of the Licensing Order. The procedure for applications for consent under Article 12A is set out in a new Schedule 4A.

Paragraph (6) of the new Article 12A adds an offence (punishable by a fine up to £500) for failure to comply with an order to make alterations.

Paragraph (7) of the new Article 12A also adds an offence (punishable by a fine up to £5000 or imprisonment up to 6 months or both) for not complying with a court order to restore premises.
