Change of premises name

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


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 be accompanied by the premises licence, or the appropriate part of the licence. If that's not practicable, you must provide a statement of the reasons why the licence (or part) cannot be produced.

There's no application form to change the name of a premises; you need to notify us by letter and post this 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, made payable to Barnsley MBC. Your notification isn't valid without the inclusion of the necessary 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 and return the premises licence, or relevant parts, to you for future reference and display.

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