� OFF liquor licences = 12 (two of these were withdrawn; average time to grant eight of these applications was 32 days; the remaining two took 91 days and 155 days respectively, due to building works not being completed).
� ON liquor licences = 23 (one was refused; 16 of these averaged 22 days; four of these took 80 days, 211 days, 60 days and 99 days respectively, due to building works and or fit-out works not being completed; two further applications are not being progressed by the applicants).
(7) There are no readily accessible database figures to respond to this question. Manually searching for this information would divert significant resources.
However, outdoor areas vary in size (similar to capacities of premises) and may range from a small cafe with only one table and a capacity of four persons up to a capacity of a couple of hundred people.
(8) The cost of a liquor licence does not vary depending on the location. The fees for the issue of a licence for 2009/10 are:
� ON licences $1,763
� General licences $2,171
� Club licences $1,763
� Special licences $2,648
� OFF licences $1,763
The fees for the renewals of a licence are based on the dollar amount of liquor purchased by the licensee during the fiscal year preceding renewal. Currently, for purchases up to and including $100,000 the renewal fee is $1,100 and for purchases over $100,000 the renewal fee is $3,055. The same renewal fees apply to all five licence categories.
There is also a fee (and similar application process) for the transfer of a liquor licence. The transfer fee is $1,324 regardless of licence category.
