115 Application of single-area conditions can be delayed for some renewals

(1)

In this section, new single-area condition means a single-area condition—

(a)

that is imposed on the renewal of an off-licence that is not subject to a single-area condition; or

(b)

that—

(i)

is imposed on the renewal of an off-licence that is subject to a single-area condition; but

(ii)

is (in the opinion of the licensing authority or licensing committee concerned) materially different from that condition.

(2)

When imposing a new single-area condition, the licensing authority or licensing committee concerned may state a period (not exceeding 18 months) from the day on which the renewal concerned takes effect during which the condition will not apply.

(3)

The period stated must be no longer than (in the opinion of the licensing authority or licensing committee concerned) is reasonably necessary to enable the licensee to configure the premises concerned so that the new single-area condition can be complied with.

(4)

When stating a period under subsection (2), the licensing authority or licensing committee concerned may state any other conditions (being conditions the authority or committee thinks reasonable) to apply while the new single-area condition does not apply.

(5)

Until the new single-area condition applies, the other conditions take effect as conditions imposed under section 117 or 132.

(6)

If the licensing authority or licensing committee concerned does not state a period under subsection (2) on renewing an off-licence subject to a new single-area condition, the new condition applies as soon as the renewal takes effect.
