You must apply if you want to change the footprint or size of your licensed premises.
We'll need a plan of your venue that outlines the current licensed area in
one colour and the proposed licensed area in a
example venue footprint plan as a guide (DOC, 1MB).
You must also use
a third colour to outline any authorisations on your licence, such as those for primary service, extended trading hours or minors' areas.

If you want to extend the footprint of your licensed premises and you want an existing extended trading authorisation (ETA) to apply to the new area, you must also apply to change your ETA.

If you don't apply to change your ETA, we'll allow liquor sales within the new licensed area
only during the standard trading period.
If you have a hotel licence and you want to extend the footprint of your licensed premises – and you want a Minors Area Authorisation (MAA) for the new area – you must also lodge an application to change your MAA.

If you have a producer/wholesaler licence and you want to licence multiple venues, you need to prove that each venue is located in the same wine region.
If none of the venues are located in a wine region, you need to prove that they are within 20km of each other.
Please make sure you notify local police and the local council. We can't approve your application before you do this correctly.
