Alcohol licence application public notices are now on our website

Public notices of alcohol licence applications are now published online on our website, making them easier to access and cheaper in almost every case for the applicant than a notice in a newspaper.

Our charge for an online public notice is $100, which in most cases will be significantly less than the charge an applicant would pay if advertising through a newspaper.
