Very Important Change To Alcohol License Application/Renewal

This is the first year following commencement of Section 4 of the Public Health (Alcohol) Act 2018 that the statutory requirement to notify the Environmental Health Service has come into effect.

There are different methods of contact depending on whether your licence is applied or renewed through the Court or Revenue systems but such contact is now mandatory and should take place 28 days or more in advance of your court date or expiration.

The commencement order was signed in 2021 to take effect from late November 22 so this is the first tranche of regular licence renewals these new requirements are applicable.
