SKYCITY Entertainment Group is one of New Zealand’s largest entertainment providers, and has premises in Auckland, Hamilton, and Queenstown, including Auckland’s iconic Sky Tower. ChanceryGreen advises SKYCITY on all aspects of its liquor licensing needs and responsibilities in New Zealand. ChanceryGreen regularly provides high level strategic advice, ensuring that all premises are operating in accordance with the most effective licensing arrangements possible, as well as the day-to-day management of licensing matters.
ChanceryGreen successfully re-licensed the entire SKYCITY Auckland premises, splitting the original ‘whole of premise’ licence into separate locality licences. Following a similar exercise in respect of SKYCITY Hamilton, licences sought as part of the separation of the ‘whole of premise’ licence have been successfully renewed.
Jason Welsh is NZQA accredited training providers for the Licence Controller Qualification and ChanceryGreen handles all aspects of obtaining and renewing General Manager certificates on behalf of SKYCITY employees.
ChanceryGreen also acted for SKYCITY in respect of resource consent applications for the proposed Elliott Tower, a 63-level apartment complex in Auckland City. The main issues raised in this appeal were the potential effects of Elliot Tower in respect of the various telecommunications facilities that are located in the Sky Tower, which is consented as both a telecommunications and observation tower. The Environment Court appeal was settled between the parties.
