Decisions

Liquor and gaming licence application decisions and reasons

When a new liquor or gaming licence application is made but receives community responses in the form of comments, representations, submissions or objections, the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) must publish the reason for the Commissioner’s decision on that application. Responses can also come from local government or the local member of parliament.
