The ability to sell or consume liquor at commercial premises is regulated by the issuing of Liquor Licences by the State Government. Due to the sensitive nature of liquor licensing applications, stringent requirements are part of the application process to the liquor licensing authority. Other referral authorities including the Police are also involved in the decision making. 

The preparation of a report detailing a venue plan with proposed licensing arrangements as well as hours of operation and licence type are integral to the timely processing of your application. In addition to a liquor licence a Planning Permit or Development Approval Application may also be required from your local Council. 

Fisher Planning is able to prepare both the Liquor Licence application and the Planning Permit Application concurrently.

It is important to note that failure to obtain a liquor licence will result in costly enforcement proceedings.
