A Closure Notice can close premises for up to 48 hours while arrangements are made for a formal application to a local Magistrates’ Court for a Closure Order.
A Closure Order can keep premises closed for up to three months.
Closure Notices and Closure Orders can apply to any land or any other place including residential businesses premises, business premises non-business premises and licensed premises. In fact they cover pretty much all premises.
