Please select a general food category for your food premises. If none are directly applicable, please select the closest option.
Should multiple applications be received for the same location prior to April 1st, the spot will be assigned by a lottery or lotteries conducted in a manner deemed appropriate by the Licensing Officer. In the event two or more applications under the same general food category are received for the same location, a lottery would be conducted from those applications to determine which will be permitted in that location. The winner of that lottery and all other applications for the same location will be entered into a lottery for the specific location with the winner(s) drawn at random. Should an applicant not be successful in obtaining their preferred location, their name would be entered into the lottery for their second-choice location and so on.
