Central Otago District Council is seeking expressions of interest from persons in the community to become members for the new Central Otago District Licensing Committee (DLC).
The DLC will be the committee primarily responsible for determining all applications for liquor licences within our District under the new Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012. They will hear applications that have been opposed by either one of the reporting agencies or a member of the general public. The committee will operate with the powers of a commission of inquiry as a semi-judicial board.
The new Act requires members to have experience relevant to alcohol licensing matters but excludes those who have an actual or perceived connection with the alcohol industry and certain other nominated occupations.
Copies of the competency guidance information fact sheets for DLC members are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Expressions of interest close 30 September 2013.
