A licensee can request an alteration to their licence in some circumstances. An alteration will only be allowable where the proposed alteration relates to:
- a reduction in the area of the licence
- the removal of a purpose specified in the licence
- the addition of a purpose to the licence that has no greater impact or usage on the land
- the addition or removal of a term or condition of the licence, provided the action has no greater impact or usage on the land.
An application fee is payable when submitting an application for a licence alteration.
Where proposed changes fail to meet the above criteria, you must submit an application for a new licence.

Sublicence a domestic waterfront licence
With approval, licence holders who have an approved berthing area within their licence can sub-licence their berthing areas to a third party.
This incentive generates an income for the licence holder and rationalises waterfront structures and moorings, freeing up space in waterways.
The minimum term for a sub-licence agreement is 12 months. The maximum term is 5 years or the balance remaining on the domestic waterfront facility licence (if fewer than 5 years).
In addition to the annual domestic waterfront licence rent, there is an annual charge for the authority to sub-licence a berthing.The berthing area can only be used for a domestic purpose and private recreation.
