Premises License Floor Plans

What is a Premises Licence Plan?

Under the Licensing Act 2003, all premises serving or selling alcohol or providing entertainment are required to submit a Premises Licence Application.

UK Premises Licence Applications must be accompanied by a scaled Premises Licence Floor Plan. A premises licencing plan is a scale drawing that includes all the required details for your premises and needs to be submitted alongside with your application.

At UK Surveyors, we offer a fast and cost-effective service and can provide you with a fully compliant and good quality plan that meet all requirements of the licence application.
