Notify the public of your alcohol licence application
How to place public notices
After you lodge your application, you'll need to notify the public:
- within 10 days, by placing an A3 notice on your premises that can be read from outside the premises. The notice must stay in place for 10 days from the date your online notice is published
See a template for the A3 notice (PDF 0.4MB)
- by publishing public notices.
Publish your public notices on the alcoholnotices.co.nz website and in a local newspaper covering the area your business is located in.
Where to publish your public notices
Publish your notices on alcoholnotices.co.nz.
This website can also manage all your public notices requirements, including:
- the online notice
- the two local newspaper public notices (in the case of low risk and very low risk renewals only one notice is needed).
Publish your notice on alcoholnotices.co.nz and then arrange directly with the newspaper to publish the two public notices in a local newspaper.
In the case of low risk and very low risk renewals you only need to publish one notice in a local newspaper.
You can publish the notice in a local newspaper covering the area your business is located in:
- Central Leader
- East and Bays Courier
- Eastern Courier
- Franklin County News
- Howick and
- Botany and Ormiston Times
- North Harbour News
- North Shore Times
- Nor-west News
Pōhutukawa Coast Times
- Rodney Times
Waiheke Gulf News
Waiuku and Districts Post
