TEMPORARY REMOVAL

The licensing authority may approve a temporary removal of a licence from the licensed premises
in the following circumstance:-

       if there has been a fire or other unforeseen or unavoidable calamity (e.g. flood, cyclone), as
       a result of which the licensed premises cannot be used for the moment; or
       if the premises are being repaired or rebuilt, or are required temporarily for some public
       purpose (e.g. as a command post during a disaster), so that the premises cannot be used
       by the licensee for the moment.
In this case, the application has no fee and can be made informally — that is, by letter or, in an
emergency by telephone.

In the case of repairs or rebuilding as set out (above), these can be
the result of a proposal by the licensee (ie to demolish and rebuild
the premises, to refurbish them), or as a result of a requirement or        Please note that an

PLANS AND SPECIFICATIONS

Plans of the proposed premises are required to be lodged with the

which the sale, supply and in some cases, the consumption of liquor
will occur if the licence is granted (section 66). Please refer to Bulletin
No 25 “Plans and Specifications” for further information.


PUBLIC INTEREST TEST
In the case of an application for the removal of a licence, the applicant will be required to
demonstrate that the application is in the public interest, having regard to the likely health and
social impacts on the community and sub-groups within the community.

The public interest test will require that the applicant satisfy the licensing authority by way of a
public interest assessment that it is in the public interest for the application to be granted. For more
