Section 21: Appeals

Section 21 sets out the circumstances in which an applicant and/or a licence holder can appeal to a court of summary jurisdiction against a decision of a district council.

An applicant may appeal against a decision of a council to refuse any application applied for (i.e. application for grant, renewal or variation), or where the licence is granted, the conditions imposed (which can include an alcohol prohibition, a variation of conditions, or additional conditions) or the area covered by the licence.

Licence holders may also appeal a decision of a district council to:

  • revoke a licence;

  • suspend a licence or extend a period of suspension;

  • vary the area and conditions of a licence, when used as an alternative to revoking the licence; and

  • limit the duration of a licence.
