Object to a liquor licence

Object to a liquore licenceIf you strongly feel that the granting of a liquor licence will impact on your community, you can object to the application through the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR). A community member can make an objection on the grounds that the liquor licence has:
  • caused undue offence, annoyance, disturbance or inconvenience to those who live or work within the area
  • had undue offence, annoyance, disturbance or inconvenience to persons in, or travelling to or from, an existing or proposed place of public worship, hospital or school
  • caused harm from alcohol abuse and misuse or associated violence
  • had an adverse effect on the health or safety of members of the public
  • an adverse effect on the amenity of the community.
OLGR has created a guide about objecting to a liquor licence in Queensland that is easy to download.  The guide details how to object to a licence, where to lodge a complaint, and how a complaint is processed.
