All opposed alcohol licensing applications must be heard by the District Licensing Committee at a public hearing.
A District Licensing Committee hearing is a formal process similar to a court hearing. The District Licensing Committee Chairperson and two appointed District Licensing Committee members hear the application.
Hearings are reasonably formal so that applications are dealt with consistently and fairly. All parties are given an equal opportunity to present their views.
Hearings are usually held at:
Whangarei District Council Chambers
9 Rust Avenue
District licensing committee hearings are open to the public, including members of the press.
On occasion, it may be necessary to exclude the public from some parts of a hearing (for example when the Committee feels the privacy of an individual needs to be protected).
