Department of Treasury and Finance
Licensing Board

The Board is an independent body responsible for:

  • hearing applications for new liquor licences and, in accordance with the Liquor Licensing Act 1990, making decisions that are in the best interests of the community;
  • determining applications by the Commissioner for Licensing to cancel or suspend liquor licences or permits; and
  • hearing appeals made against decisions of the Commissioner.

The Board is separate and independent from the Commissioner for Licensing, and a decision of the Board is final and without appeal.

A case may be made to the Supreme Court on a question of law arising from the hearing of an application or appeal.

The Board sits (on average) two days a month alternating between the north and the south of the State, dependent upon the source and nature of applications.

The Board members are:

  • Mr Phillip A Kimber – Chairman
  • Ms Kerry Sarten
  • Mr David Logie
