Draft Regulations will increase Temporary Event Notice limits in 2022/2023 and extend off-sales for a further year

Regulations have been laid in Parliament to further assist the hospitality industry following lockdown

“On Tuesday 8th June 2021 the Alcohol Licensing (Coronavirus) (Regulatory Easements) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 were laid in Parliament.

The regulations, which apply to England and Wales, will do two things:

  • Extend provisions in the Business and Planning Act 2020 to allow sales of alcohol for consumption off the premises to licensed premises that did not have that permission for a further year (to 30 September 2022).
  • Amend the limits prescribed in section 107 of the Licensing Act 2003 to increase the allowance for temporary event notices from 15 to 20, and increase the maximum number of days on which temporary events may be held from 21 to 26, in the calendar years 2022 and 2023.
    There is an amended TEN attached as a Schedule to the regulations on the above link, with updated guidance notes relating to the proposed changes to TENs.

The regulations have to be debated in both Houses of Parliament and could change. They will be made in September.

Further details to follow.”
