The Licensing Act 2003 transferred responsibility for licensing the sale and supply of alcohol from courts to local councils. Many other activities which previously had their own licence and licensing conditions were all brought under one licence known as a Premises Licence.
For small scale or one-off activities, there is a Temporary Event Notice.
It also introduced a Personal Licence which authorises a named person as being suitable to sell alcohol or to authorise others to sell alcohol on licensed premises.
