When did you last re-visit your redline plan?

A red-line plan is a document outlining the defined area where liquor can be supplied and/or consumed.

It is a condition of all liquor licences and BYO permits that a red-line plan must be submitted as part of the application process and must also be produced on a request from a police officer or a VCGLR inspector. A fine may result if a licensee is not able to produce a red-line plan or is contravening the plan approved as part of the original liquor licence.

Some licensees may have extended or renovated their establishments, resulting in a change in the areas where they would like to supply and permit consumption of liquor. Redline-plans must be varied with the VCGLR if licensees wish to change the areas where they would like to supply and permit consumption of liquor.

There is no charge if reducing the red-line area but if a licensee wishes to change the red-line area, they must apply for a variation of their licence. An application to vary a licence currently costs $187.70.
