3. Apply for a club machine permit

If your premises is a members' club, miner's welfare institution or a commercial club you can apply for a club machine permit. 

You'll need to fill in an application form and send this to us or deliver your application to our offices.  

We'll need to know:

  • your details
  • details about the premises
  • whether your club is a commercial club, a members club or a miners' welfare institute - you'll need to give us proof of your club's status
  • a detailed plan of the premises.  

Payments

You'll be charged a fee of £200.00 for this application. Please make sure you view our fees and charges for further information.

What's next

When we receive your application we'll check it to make sure it's been completed correctly. We'll telephone you if there is anything else we need.

We will then consult with the police and they'll have 28 days when they can make a representation.  

If the police don't make a representation your application will be granted and we'll send you your permit in the post.  

If a representation is received then a hearing must be heard before members of the licensing sub-committee unless all parties agree this isn't necessary.

After the hearing we'll write to you with the decision.
