A temporary event notice as such is a notification that a premises is to be used for licensable activities. It has to be given by the person who will be the premises user to the Licensing Authority, the Police and the Environmental Health Officer (EHO) (Police and EHO are now refereed to as ‘relevant person’). If it is hard copy then copies of the notice must be sent to them. If the application is submitted electronically then the licensing authority will do this for you.
A ‘relevant person’ can object to a TEN under any of the 4 licensing objectives.
The period a TEN now has been increased to 168 hours but will still be limited to less than 500 people. Anyone over 18 can give notification. The premises are only permitted 12 TEN’s per year or 21 days whichever is the least.
There are now two types of TEN’s – a ‘Standard TEN’ and a ‘Late Ten’
A ‘Standard Ten’ is one which is received at least 10 working days before the event (working days does not include the day of the event, the day the notice is given, Weekends or Public Holidays). A ‘Late TEN’ is one which is given no earlier than 9 working days before the event and no less than 5 working days before the event. (The statutory guidance issued under Section 182 of the act states 'Late TENs are intended to be used by premises users who are required for reasons outside their control to, for example, change the venue at short notice. They should not be used save in EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES.
A ‘Standard TEN’ if objected too can be issued if the ‘relevant persons’ agree. This will often be issued with conditions attached.
If a ‘relevant person’ objects to a ‘Late TEN’ then the licensing authority has to issue a counter notice which invalidates the TEN.
A personal licence holder may give a maximum of 50 Standard TENs per year and 10 Late TEN’s and a non-personal licence holder 5 Standard TENs and 2 Late TENs per year.
