Under the terms of reference for our review of Licence Rationale and Design, IPART is required to conduct a survey of all NSW licences, including licences administered by local councils. This survey aims to identify all types of licences issued by councils; the number of licences issued, by licence type, by each council in 2011/12; and the number of individuals and businesses holding these licences (where data is available). The survey also seeks comments from councils on these licences, including ways to potentially improve them.
