Add, change or remove a licence condition

If you want to add, change or remove a licence condition (other than the condition relating to your fee category), you must supply relevant supporting evidence that demonstrates why the condition should be added, changed or removed.

For example, if your application is to add a condition to allow a company to operate under another company’s licence, you must demonstrate how that company meets our general principles for this.

If your application is to remove a condition attached as a result of a review of the licence under s116 of the Gambling Act 2005, you must provide evidence that demonstrates that you have complied with that condition.

Cost: if the condition relates to one licensed activity, it will cost 25 percent of the application fee for the related activity. If the condition relates to multiple licensed activities, it will cost 25 percent of the highest application fee for the activities to which the condition relates.
