Liquor and Gaming NSW has announced a new fast-track application process for liquor licence holders wanting to transition their temporary boundary change to a permanent arrangement.

The regulator said: “If your business has been operating with temporary outdoor dining approval for a period of 12 months or more (excluding NSW COVID lockdown periods), you may be eligible to apply now.

“We have also made legislative changes so that entertainment, arts and cultural venues that offer food and alcohol can continue to apply to use footpaths, roads and foyer or performance spaces.

“Local councils or consent authorities can continue to use these legislative provisions (section 166 of the Liquor Act 2007) to approve venue use of these spaces until December 2022. Licensed venues, such as theatres can then seek approval to extend their liquor licence boundary to include these spaces under our fast-track temporary boundary change process.”

More information on how to apply is available on the Liquor and Gaming NSW outdoor dining page.
