(a) an increase in the number of people who enter the freeze precinct in which the subject premises are situated principally to consume alcohol, or
(b) an increase in the patron capacity of the subject premises.

(3) Without limiting subsection (1), the specified boundaries of any licensed premises to which a producer/wholesaler licence relates (being a producer/wholesaler licence to which section 35 applies) must not, during the freeze period, be changed if the change would result in the licensed premises being situated in a freeze precinct.
