Alcohol licensing


To be processed before the close down period (20 December 2018 – 15 January 2019), applications for events planned up until the end of February 2019 must be lodged with Council by 22 November 2018.

If you are planning to sell or supply alcohol to the public you will need to apply for a licence under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012. All applications for licences and managers' certificates are determined by the District Licensing Committee.

The requirements for licenses and certificates and the criteria to be considered for granting them are set out in the Act and Regulations.

More in-depth information on the provisions of the Act is available on the Ministry of Justice website.
