​Apply now

 In person

​Bring your completed application form and supporting documents to one of our service centres, and pay by:
  • cash
  • Visa, MasterCard or American Express.

Processing timeframe of your application

Allow six weeks processing time, if you have provided all the required documentation and there are no objections from the public or opposition to your application.

Three weeks of this time is for the public to object and the Police and the Medical Officer of Health to report on your application.

Your application will take approximately six weeks longer, and the District Licensing Committee will hold a hearing if:

  • the public, police, or the Medical Officer of Health objects
  • our licensing inspector opposes your application.

In either of these cases, or if there are discrepancies in your application, it may take longer to process.
