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.

However, it is always important to look at a firm’s experience and results when making this decision.

At Sydney Criminal Lawyers®, we have extensive experience defending and winning some of the most complex criminal matters – so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.

Our criminal law specialists will take the time in every case to carefully scrutinise all the evidence in order to identify problems with the prosecution case at an early stage in the proceedings.

Where issues are found, our lawyers will write to the prosecution asking to have the charges dropped on this basis – often sparing our clients the considerable time and expense associated with defended hearings.

However, should your matter proceed to court, our senior lawyers will represent you and present a strong defence case to maximise your chances of being found ‘not guilty.’

Our senior lawyers are highly skilled advocates who have been recognised for their expert knowledge of the criminal law, as well as their ability to obtain excellent results in difficult cases.
