Alcohol licence public notification

There is a non-working day period under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act from 20 December to 15 January each year which may extend out the closing date for public notice periods at that time of the year.

Formal public notice of an application

Applications for alcohol licences (new, renewal and variations) need to be notified to the public by publication of a public notice.

Each Community Board in Christchurch also emails out Weekly Bulletins with information for community members, networks and groups in their area. This includes a list of the current alcohol licensing public notifications for the Board area and a link to this website. You can sign up to receive those weekly bulletins under the Community Board webpage(external link) for the area you live in. 

The register below will also display the public notice start and end date for the making of public objections on an application. A history of recent notifications will also be viewable.

This is in keeping with the requirements of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012.

Applicants are also required to display a copy of the public notice on the front of the actual premises so it can be viewed from the outside.

If you have a query about an application, the public notice or the notification process, please contact the Alcohol Licensing Team directly on (03) 941 8827, 941 8068 or 941 5470. We can also arrange for a viewing of the application. 

Members of the public can object to an application for an alcohol licence in some cases. Your objection must be made within 15 working days after the date of the public notice being made.

Viewing applications

Applications (which include a plan of the premises) may be viewed in person with an alcohol licensing inspector who is available to answer any questions you may have about the process or the application.  An appointment is required, however, we are readily available.

Viewing is available during ordinary office hours with the Alcohol Licensing Team, these are Monday to Friday, at the office of the Christchurch District Licensing Committee (DLC), located at the main Civic Offices at 53 Hereford Street, Christchurch.

Please phone the Alcohol Licensing Team to discuss and arrange a suitable appointment time for you. If you live in a remote area let us know and we will make suitable arrangements with you so you can view an application.

Requesting a copy of a publically notified application: Please email alcohollicensing@ccc.govt.nz if you want a copy of an application that has been publically notified and we will accommodate your request.  Note: before we send you a copy we may be required to redact certain information because personal privacy or commercially sensitive nature.

Alcohol licensing public notice register

How long public notices are viewable in the register

Public notices will not be removed immediately following the closing date of publication. You will be able to view recent notices on this register up until an application is determined by the DLC, after which the notice will be removed.

Members of the public can object to an application for an alcohol licence in some cases. Your objection must be made within 15 working days after the date of the public notice being made. 

Any public objections made after the public notified closing date for an application (as identified in the register below) may be received but may not be considered by the Licensing Committee, as acceptance will be subject to whether the Committee considers whether a s208 waiver is appropriate in some circumstances where an objection has not been able to be filed within the timeframe set out in the Act.

Impact of the COVID-19 level 3 and 4 alert period lockdowns

The notification end dates listed below reflect the standard 15 working day time frame required and may be subject to review following any national guidance or advice from the Ministry of Justice to all Councils on legal requirements under the Act impacted by the COVID level 3 and 4 alert and lockdown periods.

This covers questions about any changes government has made to alcohol licensing processes and other general advice for Councils and their DLCs. We are required to follow the advice from the Ministry of Justice provides around legislative timelines and legal requirements during this period to ensure the intent and integrity of the licensing process is maintained for all parties.
