New rules pertaining to sale of liquor in Car Parks

OLGR advises, that as a result of recent changes to the Liquor Act 1992, from 1 September 2016, any approval you had to sell, supply or allow liquor to be consumed in a car park is no longer valid.

This approval may have been provided by the Commissioner in relation to an area forming part of your licensed premises or be listed as a condition on your licence document.

If your car park is currently a licensed area and, you want to use this area to sell, supply or allow liquor to be consumed, you can make an application for approval of use of the car park.

Approval may be granted for up to 3 months and will be subject to conditions. If these conditions are breached the approval may be immediately suspended.
