Hotel Licences authorise the sale or supply of liquor for consumption on or off the licensed premises including sales through direct sales transactions.
There are extensive conditions which apply to the issuing of a Hotel Licence, including trading hours and provision of meals.
An applicant for a Hotel Licence must satisfy the licensing authority that having regard to licensed premises already existing in the locality, the licence is necessary in order to meet the needs of the public in that locality.
The Licensing Authority must be satisfied that the proposed premises are suitable, have all the necessary planning and building approvals, applicants are suitable, that the granting of the licence will not cause any undue offence or annoyance to those who work, worship or reside in the locality, and that the licence category is suitable for the activity proposed. The licensing authority may refuse an application for a licence, but instead may grant a certificate of approval for the proposed premises.
An applicant's fitness takes into consideration prior convictions, credit worthiness and relevant knowledge, skills and experience.
Please contact the Office of the Liquor and Gambling Commissioner to discuss your specific proposal.
