Having a drink together is the way many Aucklanders like to socialise and celebrate. However, misuse of alcohol or liquor can often lead to social problems.
Auckland Council has the responsibility and legal obligation to control how alcohol or liquor are sold, supplied and consumed.
We work as the District Licensing Agency (DLA) for the Liquor Licensing Authority (LLA) in Wellington which issues liquor licences as part of The Sale of Liquor Act 1989.
Your responsibility as a host, liquor supplier, or retailer is to have the right training and liquor licence so your guests and customers can enjoy their alcoholic drinks responsibly and within the law.
