Council’s Liquor Licensing Inspector will be in contact with you to arrange an interview to assess your knowledge of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 and to determine if you are suitable to control a licensed premises. The inspector will take you through a number of scenarios covering:
- The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012;
- Host responsibility; and
- Manager’s duties.
Your application and reports from the agencies involved will be passed on to the Horowhenua District Licensing Committee (DLC) to make a decision whether to grant the issue of a manager’s certificate. If there is no opposition to your application you will be notified that the manager’s certificate has been granted. If there are any objections or opposition to your application, you will be asked to attend a public hearing before the DLC.
Please note that the statutory timeframe allowed for the processing of applications is 20 working days.
