NOTES
1. In terms of Section 68 of the Licensing (Scotland) Act the Licensing Board may
extend the licensed hours if it considers it appropriate to do so in connection with a
special event or occasion to be catered for on the premises, or an event of local or
national significance.
2. In terms of Section 68(2) of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005, the duration applied
for may not exceed a period of one month.
Please ensure that the ‘from’ and ‘to’ dates of the proposed duration reflect the days
on which the extension should begin and end.
(e.g. A Premises Licence allows a premises to trade until 01:00 and said premises
lodges an extended hours application to trade until 02:00 in respect of a special
event – such as a Wedding Reception. If the Wedding Reception takes place on a
Friday evening, then the Extended Hours Application should specify the start date as
the Saturday from 01:00 to 02:00 and not Friday – since the extension would not take
effect until 01:00 on the Saturday morning.)
3. An Extended Hours Application does not allow a premises to sell alcohol for
consumption off the premises if the relevant Premises Licence only allows the sale of
alcohol on the premises and vice versa.
An extension of hours for the sale of alcohol for consumption off premises cannot
extend outwith the hours of 10.00 to 22:00.
