Payments for Licence Applications

Please note: We don't accept payments via cheque for Licence applications. Alternatively, you can pay using a Debit/Credit Card online via our website, by telephone or in person at our main offices at Phoenix House in Tiverton. (Direct Debit Mandates do not apply for licencing services).

Please refer to our We've changed the ways you can pay page to find out more about making Council payments.

If you wish to nominate or become a new DPS on a premises licence, you must submit an application and consent form.

Apply online

Apply by post

Download:  Vary Designated Premises Supervisor application form.

If you are submitting it hard copy you will have to post your application to:

  • Licensing, Mid Devon District Council, Phoenix House, Phoenix Lane, Tiverton EX16 6PP
  • Licensing Department, Devon & Cornwall Constabulary, Launceston Police Station, Moorland Road, Launceston, PL15 7HY

You must also complete the Consent of an individual to being specified as Premises Supervisor and return the form to the licensing Team.

The application to vary a premises licence to specify an individual as designated premises supervisor under the Licensing Act 2003 asks the licensee to give a copy of the form to the existing premises supervisor. The completed form contains personal information about the proposed new DPS and sharing this information would be in breach of the Data Protection Act 1998. It is sufficient for the licensee to inform the DPS that the application has been made, without the need to share the specific details of the application. A full copy of the application form must still be sent to police. The form will be amended via regulations as soon as possible to make this clear.
