Change to the liquor licence application process

The NSW 2007 Liquor Act does not permit a liquor licence to be granted without development consent or approval.  The IL&GA are now advising applicants to submit a copy of their consent or approval at the time the liquor application is lodged.  Applications that are lodged without the relevant consent or approval will be deemed incomplete, and the application will not be processed.  Consequently, the 30-day submission period will not commence until the consent or approval has been lodged.  Further, only at that time will the details of the application be uploaded to the OLGR’s public noticeboard.
