If your premise is a village hall or community premises you can apply to sell alcohol without the need for a designated premises supervisor under an exemption which would mean the committee would be responsible for all alcohol sales.
The need for a designated premises supervisor can be dis-applied under Section 41(d) of The Licensing Act 2003 and replaced with the following mandatory licence conditions:
- The responsibility for authorising sales of alcohol will be the committee or board of individuals responsible for the management of the premises
- These individuals will be required to undertake the responsibilities that would normally be undertaken by a designated premises supervisor. Provided the premises licence holder (the committee) had properly authorised the sale of alcohol, for example in written form through a hire agreement, an organisation or hirer using these premises for the sale of alcohol under the authority of the premises licence would not be required to obtain a personal licence.
The applicant for a section 41(d) must submit to the licensing authority a completed application form, a fee (if relevant), existing premises licence and summary (if relevant) and copies of the premises hiring agreement and terms and conditions, demonstrating how the committee will seek not to undermine any of the licensing objectives below.
One copy of the completed application, with copies of the hiring agreement and terms and conditions must be served on Licensing Authority and also be served on Humberside Police licensing team:

If the applicant applies for the variation section 41(d) at the same time as a grant application for a premises licence or a section 34 premises licence variation application there is no additional fee. If applying for a variation under section 41(d) on its own, there is a fee of £23.
If the licensing authority determines that you meet the requirements to not need a designated premises supervisor and no concerns are raised by Humberside Police within 14 days of your application, your licence will be issued/amended as applicable.
A provisional statement can be used to obtain confirmation that a premises that is not yet built, under construction or about to be substantially altered would be granted a premises licence. There is nothing to stop an individual making an application for a premises licence in the same situation.
The applicant for a provisional statement must go through the same process as a premises licence. However, at the end they will not be granted a premises licence.
Once the premises have been completed or nearly completed the applicant for the provisional statement will be required to submit a premises licence application. The licensing authority will not be able to accept any objections to the premises licence application unless the application has changed from the original provisional statement, or a responsible authority or interested party was unable to make an objection to the original application for a provisional statement and has a reasonable excuse:
