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.
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.
Christmas processing dates
Applications need to be received into Council on or before 22 November 2020 to be processed and granted prior to 20 December 2020. The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 does not recognise 20 December to 15 January as working days therefore 15 January 2021 is the first day for applications to start being processed for the New Year, although you can submit your application prior to that date.
