Extend a trading area
If you want to sell liquor to be consumed on a footpath or similar outdoor area that isn't part of your venue, you'll need to apply for an extension of trading area.
When applying you'll need to upload these documents (a clear photo is acceptable):
- two floor plans of the venue - how to submit plans for a licensed venue (PDF 344 KB)
- a copy of your outdoor dining permit from the local council.
What happens next
You can log in to LGO at any time to track the progress of your application.
Some applications are sent to the South Australia Police Licensing Enforcement Branch.
Some are also required to be advertised.
CBS will advise you of the next steps and what you need to do.
Submissions and interventions
If your application needs to be advertised, anyone will be able to submit their concerns and object to the application.
For example, if your neighbours think your business is going to be noisy or if they are concerned your business will have an impact on the neighbourhood they may consider lodging a submission with the commissioner.
The police may also intervene in your application if they have concerns about public safety and disturbance or the fitness and propriety of any person holding the licence.
If all the approvals are in place and there are no concerns raised by any member of the public (submissions) or police (interventions), the application process will take approximately six to eight weeks.
Submissions or interventions must be lodged at least seven days before the determination date.
If anyone submits a concern regarding your application you'll receive a copy.
You may then be asked to submit a response to the commissioner.
In some rare circumstances, you may also be asked to:
- take part in a conciliation conference with SAPOL (or anyone else who submitted their concerns) and the commissioner or a delegate
- attend a hearing before the Licensing Court.
When determining a matter, the commissioner or delegate must consider all submissions, interventions and responses.
