The district licensing agency will acknowledge your objection and will send a copy of the objection to the applicant.
The application and any letters of objection will be sent to the Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority (ARLA), which will set a date for a public hearing.
All parties have the opportunity to speak and to ask questions at the public hearing. If your objection is a petition, you need to appoint a spokesperson.
The Alcohol Regulatory and Licensing Authority (ARLA), once it has heard everyone in relation to the application, may reserve its decision. This means that it may take up to six weeks to issue the decision.
