Temporary Event Notices - better late than never!25 April 2012
We are pleased to announce that we have submitted with the relevant authorities what will undoubtedly be some of the first late Temporary Event Notices (TENs) in
Late Temporary Event Notices are now permitted by amendments to the Licensing Act 2003 (coming into force today) made pursuant to the Police Reform & Social Responsibility Act 2011.
A TEN will now be classed as ‘late’ if it is submitted between five and nine working days before the event day.
This means that it is still a valid TEN (unlike the pre-25th April regime). However, should the Police or EHO object to the Notice, then the Licensing Authority must issue a counter-notice which effectively invalidates the TEN.
Should you have any queries about the changes to the TENs regime, or require assistance in the preparation and submission of TENs, please contact us.
