Local Alcohol Licensing Policies


Below is the full list of District Councils with links to their relevant pages for alcohol licencing.

Notes:
  • The Council name incorporates a link to the council home page
  • Link to Service: links directly to the main page of that councils alcohol licencing service
  • LAP: shows the Councils Local Alcohol policy progress if available.
  • Online Application Form: Shows if you can download an application form for a licence. Most councils prefer you to visit with their Liquor Licence officers or District Licencing Committee prior to making an application.
  • Many councils are currently updating their online forms to bring in line with the new Liquor laws and are therefore not currently available on line.
