Personal and premises licences
See if you need a personal or premises licence
We're responsible for issuing alcohol and entertainment licences in the district.
You will need a premises licence if your business plans to do any of the following:
- supply alcohol
- play live or recorded music
- show or host film events
- sell hot food after 11pm and before 5am
- host boxing or wrestling entertainment
- host indoor sporting events
- performance of a play
If your business plans to sell alcohol then you will need to designate a premises supervisor, who must have a personal licence.
The personal licence authorises that person to sell or supply alcohol at a licensed premises.
