The Kāpiti Coast District Council administers the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 and has appointed the Kāpiti Coast District Licensing Committee (DLC) to consider and determine applications for:
- licences and managers' certificates
- renewal of licences and managers' certificates
- temporary authority orders
- special licences.
Under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, anyone who wants to sell or supply alcohol must have a current alcohol licence.
Special licences over Christmas and New Year period
If you wish to apply for a special licence for an event over the Christmas–New Year period, please note all special licences require 20 working days for processing (excluding the day of filing of the application and the day of the event).
Special licences for events over the holiday period cannot be processed after 16 November unless exceptional circumstances apply where the event could not have been predicted earlier.
The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 has a close-down period for processing licence applications from 20 December to 15 January. Applications received late may not be able to be issued for events over the Christmas period.
Applications for licences and certificates are processed by the Licensing Team at Council. We aim to deliver an effective service by raising awareness of the statutory requirements and helping you to navigate the process.
