For example: if a function or event runs for 2 days and the maximum number of persons expected to be present in the licensed area at any one time is 300, then the fee will be calculated on an attendance of 300 for each date and will be $229.

Public interest submissions

In order for the licensing authority to consider an application to alter the licence conditions you may be requested to lodge a public interest submission detailing the changes and the reasons why you need to trade in a manner not already permitted on your permanent liquor licence.
