There are many types of liquor licences. Most require Planning permission prior to obtaining a liquor licence from the Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission (VGCCC).
The type of licence required is determined by VGCCC, not by council or the applicant. Therefore, you should contact VGCCC to determine the appropriate type of licence before making an application for a Planning Permit. Details of the type of liquor licences that require a Planning Permit can be found here

A permit is also required for the following:
- a different licence, or category of licence from that which is in force
- if the hours of trading allowed under any licence are to be extended
- if the number of patrons allowed under any licence is to be increased
- The licensed area (‘red line’) is being extended
