Hamilton District Licensing Committee (DLC)

​​​​​​​​​​​The Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act requires each local authority to establish a district licensing committee (DLC) to replace its previous district licensing agency. A district licensing committee determines applications for alcohol licences and managers' certificates. 

More details on Hamilton's DLC and its functions are outlined below. If you still need more information on our committee (or on district licensing committees in general), please contact us​ (ask for alcohol licensing) or email us​​.​​​
