  • The date of notification.
  • The name and contact details of licensee and premises.
  • The type of premises and type of licence held for the premises.
  • The capacity of the premises.
  • For each game: the teams playing (or, if unknown, the title of the game to be played, e.g. quarterfinal 1), the date, approximate opening and closing times (NZ time), and,
  • A plan to manage noise.

All notification forms should be filled out and sent to the Alcohol Licensing team – admindlc@tauranga.govt.nz.
