Process for Special Licences applications
You need a Special Licence if you are selling alcohol at an event or charging an entry fee or collecting donations where alcohol is being supplied for free.
Please note: A special licence can be issued for more than one day if the events are of the same nature
You need to apply for a special licence at least 20 working days before your event. Working days don't include public holidays, weekends and the period from 20 December to 15 January inclusive.
If you submit your application less than 20 working days before your event, you will need to include a reason why the application was late as a waiver will be required from the District Licensing Committee to lodge the late application.
Large Events – please contact an Environmental Health Officer prior to lodging the application to discuss. For more information visit Alcohol.org.nz
