Business and Planning Act 2020
The Act came into force on 22nd July 2020. The provisions in the Act temporarily modify the Licensing Act 2003 to provide an automatic extension to the terms of most premises licences which only permit the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises to allow the sale of alcohol for consumption off the premises.
You must notify the Licensing team if you have commenced off-sales under this temporary extension. This can be done by emailing email@example.com with the name and address of your premises, and a start date in which you intend to commence using this temporary extension to your licence.
This will make it easier for licensed premises to sell alcohol to customers for consumption off the premises in England and Wales, which will allow businesses to trade and maintain social distancing. Please see the links below for further information about how to make use of the new entitlements and template Section 172F Statements.
