All applications for a premises licence or club premises certificate must include a plan of the premises.

You must draw the plan of the premises in the standard scale 1:100 and you must show the following features:

  • The extent of the boundary of the building, if relevant and any external walls of the building and, if different, the perimeter of the premises
  • The location of points of access to and egress from the premises
  • The location of escape routes from the premises
  • The area within the premises to be used for each licensable activity

  • The location of any room or rooms containing public conveniences

  • The location of a kitchen, if any, on the premises

You can use a legend to explain the symbols used on the plan.
