About the Network

The District Licensing Committee (DLC) Network

An advisory group made up of DLC members has been formed with support from the Health Promotion Agency. The group has agreed on a range of initiatives to improve competency in decision making processes of DLCs. The current DLC Advisory Group has a temporary role to support the development of the DLC Network until such time as a Chair and Committee is elected.

The DLC Advisory Group is a committee of committed individuals who want to share their experiences and provide all DLC members with the information they need to make decisions that meet the object and purpose of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act.  The following principles guide the Group’s activities:

Message from the Chair

 Karen Hunt

Welcome to the District Licensing Committee (DLC) Network website.  This website has been developed by the DLC Network to provide a conduit for DLC Chairs, Commissioners and members to provide resources on matters of common interest that will improve the quality of decision making and writing.

We encourage you to join this network of DLC decision makers to enable you to gain access to information that will assist you in your role as a DLC member. Discussion of current case law, mentoring and collegial support are just a few of the benefits to be gained by DLC members.

We urge you to sign up and trust you will find the new forum and the resources of value in your role as a decision maker.
