September legal round-up on off-sales and changes to temporary event notices allowance

TENs increased for 2022 and 2023 and off-sales relaxation to continue until September 2022

“Following on from our e-news back in June, The Alcohol Licensing (Coronavirus) (Regulatory Easements) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 (The Regulations) have now been approved by Parliament and are in force.

The Regulations have extended the 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 from today, to 30 September 2022.

If your premises has previously benefitted from this relaxation over the pandemic, there is nothing new that needs to be done to continue to benefit, beside ensuring the correct notice is still displayed in a prominent position outlining your reliance on this relaxation.

In addition to the above, the Regulations have amended the limits prescribed by the Licensing Act 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. This increase only applies in the years 2022 and 2023.

The full regulations can be viewed here.”
