Alcohol licence public notification

Where can you find the 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.

From 16 April 2018 the public notices for all applications in Christchurch and Banks Peninsula will be published on this website in the register on this page below.

Public notices will no longer be published in local newspapers (The Press or The Star). This means that you will only need to visit this webpage to see if there’s an application that interests you. Please note that there will be about a month’s transition crossover period for public notices already arranged by applicants for newspaper publication. 

The register below will also display the public notice start and end date for the making of pubic 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 actual premises.

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 of 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.  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.
