Council is responsible for registering certain types of personal care industries. This includes those offering hairdressing, body piercing, manicures, pedicures, colonic irrigation, waxing and solariums. Please contact Council if you're unsure of your registration requirements.
Our Environmental Health Officer's role is to ensure that standards and premises requirements are met under the Public Health & Wellbeing Regulations 2019. The Department of Health guidelines for personal care and body art industries is used to demonstrate compliance with the regulations and follows a risk management approach.
We offer a service to review and endorse premises plans so that we can assess compliance with the regulations. To avoid the risk of delays and extra costs if extra building works or alterations are needed to obtain registration, you should arrange for an assessment from Council before registering your new business.
