The Legislation

47C Restrictions on granting extended trading authorisations

During the freeze period:

(a) an extended trading authorisation (other than an extended trading authorisation referred to in paragraph (c)) must not be granted in relation to subject premises, and
(b) an extended trading authorisation applying to subject premises must not be varied so as to increase the trading hours of the premises, and
(c) the Authority must not grant an extended trading authorisation in relation to subject premises so as to authorise the sale or supply of liquor on the premises for a special occasion that takes place on a specified date, and not on a regular basis, if the Authority is satisfied that the granting of the authorisation is likely to result in:
(i) an increase in the number of persons who enter the freeze precinct in which the premises are situated principally to consume alcohol, or
(ii) an increase in the patron capacity of the premises.
