On 1 January 2016 the total number of temporary event notices (TENS) that can be applied for in respect of any one premises in a calendar year increased from 12 to 15. This change was made by section 68 of the Deregulation Act 2015.
Whilst any increase will be welcome to the trade and event organisers, the extra 3 offers only a small benefit, and it should not be forgotten that there was no change to the other limits, so anyone who holds a personal licence is still subject to a maximum of 50 in a calendar year wherever the event will be held, and anyone who applies who does not hold a personal licence is limited to just 5 per calendar year. And the limit of the use of any premises under a TEN of 21 days per calendar year is also unchanged.
For more details see our guide to applying for a TEN, which will be updated to show the new limit of 15.
