We treat an application to remove a hotel liquor licence to another location as if it's an application for a new hotel liquor licence.
You can't lodge an application to remove your hotel liquor licence until you consult your local community.
This means that either before or within 2 working days of lodging your application you must:
You must also complete a FM2010 Category B Community Impact Statement (CIS) (PDF, 272KB) before you apply to remove a hotel liquor licence.
It costs $2,500 to remove a hotel liquor licence.
About 12 to 16 weeks.
Once you lodge a complete application, we'll post it to our online noticeboard for 30 days to give the public a chance to comment.
When the 30-day public submission period is over, you can expect us to determine your application within 8-12 weeks.
However, there will be delays if you fail to respond to our requests for information.
You can lodge your application without giving us the above documentation, but your proposal won't progress to a decision without it.
You can't remove authorisations along with a hotel liquor licence. You must make a new application for each liquor licence authorisation to apply to your new licensed premises.
You must conduct a
Community Impact Statement 30 days before lodging your application to remove a general bar licence. If you also want to apply for extended trading hours, you must deal with this in your CIS.
When you apply to remove a hotel liquor licence you must also think about the impact on any
Gaming Machine Entitlements attached to your licence.
