Designated Premises Supervisors
If you are supplying alcohol on your premises, there must be a single Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) for each one.
The Designated Premises Supervisor:
- must have a personal licence
- must be named on the premises licence
- can be the DPS for more than one premises
To change the Designated Premises Supervisor, you need to send us:
- a completed application form to change the Designated Premises Supervisor (PDF 80.9KB)
- the relevant fee
- a signed consent form from the new DPS
- the existing premises licence, the relevant part of it or an explanation for why you are unable to return it
Please send your completed application to:
Central Bedfordshire Council
High Street North
You also need to send a copy of your application to:
The Police Licensing Officer
Luton Police Station
You will need to send a further copy to the current designated premises supervisor.
Removing the requirement for a DPS for community premises
This legislation includes the ability to transfer responsibility from the DPS to a management committee for community premises.
For premises already with a DPS, the cost of transferring to the management committee is £23.
How to apply
Community premises changing the DPS requirement on a new application or variation to add alcohol sales will pay the appropriate full fee, enclosed with the application to transfer. You can download an application to transfer responsibility from DPS to management committee for community premises below:

Tacit consent does not apply for this licence. If you have not heard from us within a reasonable period, please email the licensing team at email@example.com.
