Alternative mandatory condition - premises licence

On 1 April the single new council for North Yorkshire launched replacing Scarborough Borough Council and other local authorites in North Yorkshire.

To find your Councillor or to view minutes, meetings and agendas please visit the North Yorkshire Council website.

The 'alternative mandatory condition' in relation to a premises licence means the condition that every supply of alcohol under the licence must be made or authorised by the management committee. This means 'community premises' do not need to have a designated premises supervisor.

An Alternative Mandatory Condition can be applied for in two different ways: 

  • as part of an application for a New Premises Licence; or
  • as a distinct application where an existing licence is in place;

Community premises usually fall into one of the following categories:

  • premises that are or form part of a church hall, chapel hall or other similar building; or
  • premises that are or form of a village hall, parish hall or community hall or other similar building;
