POLICY ASK: Strengthen the risk based licencing system for on- and off-licence premises

Strengthen the risk based licencing system for on- and off-licence premises

Queensland’s licensing system, like those in other jurisdictions, recognises the risks associated with the sale and consumption of alcohol and variation in risk between venues. Licence fees consist of a base fee, which varies for different types of venues and in the case of community clubs, for membership size, and applies a loading for criteria associated with trading hours and compliance history. The system needs strengthening to better reflect the risks associated with alcohol consumption and sales and to tighten existing criteria.
