Can the licence changed after it has been granted?


A licence may be varied by the LHA at any time during its life in the following circumstances:

  • With the agreement of the licence holder, such as where a new manager is agreed
  • Following a change in circumstance since the licence was granted

A change in circumstance would include:

  • The discovery of new information
  • A change in the prescribed standards (i.e. those set by the regulations) since the licence was granted

In deciding whether to vary a licence the LHA may not impose higher, or otherwise different, standards than applied when it originally granted the licence, except where the standards are required to meet new amenity standards prescribed by regulations.
