Change of premises name

If a licensed premises changes its name, the premises licence holder must tell us as soon as they can.


There's a fee of £10.50 to change the premises name.

How to apply

You must notify us if the premises is located within our licensing area. Your notification of a change of name must have the premises licence, or the appropriate part of the licence attached. If you can't do this, you must give a statement with reasons why the licence (or part) cannot be produced.

There's no form to change the name of a premises. You'll need to notify us by letter. Please post it to: Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Licensing, Legal Services, PO Box 634, Barnsley, S70 9GG.

Please make sure you enclose a cheque for the correct amount. It needs to be made payable to Barnsley MBC. Your notification isn't valid if it doesn't include the correct payment.

What happens next

When we receive your notification, fee and premises licence (or relevant parts) we'll update our records and the public register. We'll then return the premises licence, or relevant parts, to you. This will help for future reference and display.

We'll acknowledge your notification within five working days and process your notification within 10 working days.
