Liquor - Leave of Absence

A licensee must not be absent from supervising a liquor licence without permission.

·         If the licensee is absent between 2 and 7 days - permission is granted by the Chairman of the Court.  Licensees are advised to write to the Chairman of the Court, The Court of Alderney, Queen Elizabeth II Street, Alderney requesting permission to be absent.  The Chairman will consider the application and the applicant will be notified of that decision as soon as possible.

·         If the licensee is absent for more than 7 days - permission is granted by the Court.  Licensees are advised to write to the Greffier at the above address, to request leave of absence and nominate a person to exercise the liquor licence in their absence.  Both the licensee and nominated person must attend the Court on the date given and a Court application fee is payable.

This does not apply where there are two licensees named on the licence and only one will be absent.
