Licensing: variation applications


Determination of an application to vary a licence under section 104 of the Gambling Act 2005 (opens in a new tab) (including personal licence).

Person to whom the function is delegated and conditions under which the authority is vested

Applications made under sub-section (1)(a) (add, amend, remove a licensed activity) may be determined by the person delegated to grant applications for licences as set out previously. In addition, Assistant Regulatory Caseworkers or above may determine applications made under sub-section (1)(b) (amend another detail of the licence).

A Regulatory Manager or above may determine an application falling under sub-section (1)(c) (add, amend, remove a condition attached under section 77).

Minded to refuse cases: Where the conclusion of staff is that an application should be refused a 'minded to refuse' letter will be sent to the applicant.

Where, in response to such a letter, the applicant requests a hearing before the Regulatory Panel, the Panel will determine the case, otherwise a Regulatory Manager or above may decide to refuse the application.
