Planning (Section 50) Certificates
Apply for a planning certificate for Premises Licence applications (Section 50)
According to Section 50 of the Licensing(Scotland) Act 2005, when someone wants to apply to the council for a premises licence to sell alcohol any application must be accompanied by a planning certificate. A planning certificate shows:
- Planning permission has been obtained for any development of the premises in connection with their proposed use as licensed premises
- or that no such planning permission is required.
When someone wants to apply for a provisional premises licence any application must be accompanied by a provisional planning certificate to show:
- Planning permission or outline planning permission has been obtained for any construction or conversion of the subject premises
- or that no such planning permission is required
