Christmas / New Year deadlines for applications
CHRISTMAS / NEW YEAR DEADLINES: Anyone planning to sell alcohol at an event or function must have a special licence, which needs to be applied for 20 days before the event.
With the Christmas break not far away, if you need a special licence in January or February your application must be submitted by Friday 20 November and Friday 4 December respectively.
The same applies to those wanting a building or resource consent before the Christmas/ New Year break. You will need to lodge your application with us by Friday 20 November.
While our staff make every effort to process applications as quickly as possible, there's always an influx in the lead-up to Christmas.
And don't forget, it's important to make sure building/ resource consent applications have all the necessary information. If not, the application may not be accepted or processing may be suspended until the information is provided.
To avoid disappointment, get your applications in as soon as possible.
