Published 19th July 2017, 11:48am

Liquor licence holders in the Cayman Islands – including those with music and dancing licences – are reminded of the Friday, 18 August 2017 deadline to submit renewals.

Licensees are reminded before they can apply for renewal, the premises must be inspected and approved by the relevant Government agencies. Depending on particular business being carried on, these inspections may include the Fire Service, Department of Environmental Health, Planning Department, and/or Port Authority.

To assist with the liquor licence renewal process, below are contact details for the various Departments to arrange for inspections:

The Planning Department: Inspections must be conducted by private licensed plumbers and electricians. These inspection reports can then be presented to the Planning Department at its counter on the 1st floor of the Government Administration Building or submitted online at www.planning.ky/ops.

The Department of Environmental Health: Contact the department directly at 949-6696 or email dehcustomerservice@gov.ky for information or to schedule an inspection; alternatively you visit the department at 580 North Sound Road, George Town. In Cayman Brac, contact the DEH Office at 916-4201.

The Fire Service: The department suggests that you schedule your annual fire safety inspection by sending an email to all the Inspectors listed below. Alternatively, you may call or email a specific inspector directly, if so preferred. Applicants are required to have their annual servicing and maintenance reports for all necessary fire protection systems available. The applicable reports will be required to be submitted to the department for review and consideration prior to the scheduling of the inspection.

Inspectors’ Names and Contact Information:

The Port Authority: Vessel inspection requests and fees should be made at the Port Authority location at 45A, Harbour Drive, George Town. All queries can be directed to 949-2055 or cjackson@caymanport.com

Police Clearances can also be requested and paid for at the business licensing counter of the Department of Commerce & Investment at the time the renewal applications are being submitted.
