Premise Licences

Request for Removal of a Designated Premises Supervisor

An individual who is named as the designated premises supervisor (DPS) on a premises licence can submit a notice to the Licensing Authority which removes himself from that position.

The notification must be made in writing and if the person is also the premises licence holder, the notification must be accompanied by the premises licence or, if that is not possible he/she must provide a statement outlining the reasons why he/she has failed to provide the licence.

If the DPS is not the premises licence holder, they must:

  • Within 48 hours of giving notice to the council, give the holder of the premises licence a copy of their request, and
  • Request that the premises licence holder forwards his/her premises licence to the council, or
  • Provide a statement outlining the reasons why he/she has failed to provide the licence within 14 days

If the premises licence holder fails to send the premises licence to us he/she will commit an offence.

There are no fees to remove yourself as the DPS from a premises licence.
