Temporary licences

32. There is no requirement for a notice to be displayed when an application for a temporary licence has been made.

33. Where an application for a temporary licence has been submitted, the licensing authority need only consult the chief constable, and if necessary, the fire authority.

34. The licensing authority can grant a temporary licence subject to conditions.

35. A temporary licence cannot be granted for longer than six weeks, and cannot be renewed. The holder of, or the applicant for, a temporary licence can however also make an application for a full licence for the same activity. If an application for a full licence (for the same activity) is made, the temporary licence, if granted, continues until the full licence is granted or, if it is refused, until the timescale for an appeal has lapsed or the appeal has been determined or abandoned.
