Please note more time is required to process licence applications over the Christmas / New Year period. This is because working days include the period 20 December and 15 January under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012.
Please ensure you get your renewal application in as soon as possible if your renewal is due between this period. You can continue to work even if your certificate isn’t renewed in time as long as the renewal application has been submitted and paid for. Please expect delays through December 2023 and January 2024.
Please Note: To complete the application you will need to answer all questions, supply all requested documentation and make payment of the prescribed fee in full. If you have any questions or need assistance please contact our Liquor Licencing Inspector on 06 835 7579.
Council reserves the right to amend the fee based on the type of application to ensure the appropriate fee has been charged.
