Alcohol Ban Dispensation

Dispensation to an alcohol ban can be sought from the Council for specific events where people may want to provide alcohol, e.g. for a wedding ceremony. If a special alcohol licence has been issued for the sale of alcohol at an event, then dispensation to the Bylaw is automatically given and a further application for dispensation is not required.
