Renew your licence

All on licences, off licences and club licences must be renewed after an initial 12-month period and every three years thereafter.

We send out reminder notices and application forms two months before the licence is due for renewal. The licensee is responsible for lodging the application for renewal of the licence at least 20 working days before the expiry date.

You can request changes to your licence conditions as part of the renewal. If making changes to how you are operating your business, please make an appointment with an inspector at the Waimakariri District Council to discuss before you file your application.

Apply to renew your licence

Renewal for an on licence, off licence or club licence involves a similar process to the initial application.
