From 1 July 2015, a new nightclub licence will replace the previous “commercial other subsidiary on-premises licence (with the principal activity of entertainment)”.
Updating existing licences
Any licensees who currently hold a commercial other subsidiary on-premises licence (with the principal activity of entertainment) will automatically be changed to the new nightclub licence with the same approved trading hours and conditions. OLGR will send an updated licence document to the premises in due course. Any applications currently lodged with OLGR for the previous licence type will be automatically considered as an application for the new nightclub licence. This new licence type requires toilet facilities to be located on the licensed premises.
The principal activity of the new nightclub licence remains the ‘provision of entertainment’.
