Craven District Council launches online Temporary Event Notice form
Craven District Council has launched a new online method for premises licence holders and residents to apply for Temporary Event Notices.
A Temporary Event Notice is a temporary licence allowing premises and residents to sell alcohol, provide entertainment and serve late night hot food and drinks.
It also allows licensed premises to make temporary changes to their licence conditions, such as extending opening hours for an event.
The new form, which is now live, will allow residents and licence holders to apply quickly and easily, and pay online via the Craven District Council website.
Deborah Bragg, Craven District Council Licensing Manager, said: “The Council receives around 300 Temporary Event Notice applications each year and we hope that the new online form will make the application process easier for residents and allow the Licensing team to process them more efficiently.
“We would like to thank the premise licence holders who kindly tested the form for us, and provided useful feedback, and we will continue to make improvements to the form and the wider website based on feedback from residents.”
Residents and licence holders will receive email confirmation when the form has been submitted, along with an email with the approval when it has been processed. Environmental Health and North Yorkshire Police will also be automatically informed of all Temporary Event Notices.
Where an event does not have a fixed address, for example a marquee in a field, a map function means the applicant can plot the event accurately.
The launch of the online Temporary Event Notice form is part of the Council's on-going commitment to improve its website and allow residents to easily apply online for council services at a time to suit them.
