All sales of alcohol must be made by, or under the authority of, a Personal Licence Holder. Not everyone who makes a sale has to hold a Personal Licence, so long as a Personal Licence Holder has authorised the sale.
This does not apply to Qualifying Clubs or premises operating under a Temporary Event Notice. You must apply to your local licensing authority for your Personal Licence if you reside within the area. You can have as many Personal Licence Holders on one premises as you wish, providing there is only one Designated Premises Supervisor. You can also choose to become a Personal Licence Holder if you wish to apply for more than five Temporary Event Notices a year, but otherwise would not require one.
All premises operating under a Premises Licence to sell or supply alcohol in Malvern Hills must appoint a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) for the premises. There can only be one DPS per premises. The DPS will be held as the person in overall charge of the premises. You should therefore choose this person with care. Applicants must nominate the DPS on their application form. This person does not have to be on the premises at all times, but they must take responsibility for what happens there. This means the DPS should ensure any staff they appoint are appropriately trained in the requirements of the Licensing Act 2003 and of any specific conditions attached to the Premises Licence.
A person cannot become a DPS unless he is also a Personal Licence Holder. Although qualifying clubs do not need a DPS to sell alcohol to members and their guests, this exemption does not apply if the premises in Malvern Hills are hired out for functions such as wedding receptions.
Each premises licence which includes the sale or supply of alcohol must nominate a designated premises supervisor (DPS). They must be a Personal Licence holder and act as a contact point for the police and other responsible authorities in case there are issues with the sale and supply of alcohol.
Only one supervisor is required and will normally be responsible for any premises on a day to day basis. You can have more than one Personal Licence holder per premises and this can be the same person as the premises supervisor.
You need a full Premises Licence for these activities (unless you are only holding a small number of events, which you can hold under a TEN) and therefore need to appoint a DPS.
A Personal Licence authorises an individual to sell or supply alcohol from a licensed premises. A Personal Licence is not required if only conducting the other licensable activities (regulated entertainment or provision of late night entertainment) in a licensed premises.
