The plan, when finally approved, will form part of the licence and accordingly it is important to include upon it only the items referred to in the Regulation. The inclusion of extra, albeit helpful information could result in applications for variation being needed if those extra details are changed at any time.
We suggest you include the following legend – “anything shown on this plan which is not required by The Gambling Act 2005 (Premises Licences and Provisional Statements) Regulations 2009 is for illustrative purposes only, and does not form part of the premises licence”.
There is no scale set for the plans however they should be drawn to scale.
