Certain applications received under the Liquor Control Act 1988
are required to be advertised for a specified period, allowing for the
public to obtain more details about the application or the objection process.
Applications that are listed are currently within their advertising period.
There are no currently advertised applications.
Pursuant to section 73 of the Act, a person may lodge an objection to an advertised application by the date as specified on the advertisement. The objection must be lodged on the approved form.
