Licensing Service Standards and Policies

The Licensing Section endeavours to provide the highest level of service to all its customers.  However, should you have a complaint to make about the standard of service you have received or would like to make a suggestion on how the Section's service delivery may be improved, we would be pleased to hear from you so that the matter may be satisfactorily resolved.

We will consider all suggestions received with a view to improving the service and will implement these, legislation and Council Policy permitting.
