Special Licences

A Special Licence authorises the holder of the licence to sell and supply alcohol on the premise or conveyance described in the licence to any person attending a one-off occasion or event.

One of the requirements of a special licence is the provision of food at all times alcohol is for sale and supply. Timaru District hosts a number of large annual festivals and food stall holders are required to complete and return a food stall application form to the Timaru District Council. For single events please complete the Food Safety application form together with your application for a special licence.
