​​​​​​​​​​​Certain businesses are required to be licensed under the Health Act including hairdressers and camp grounds.

Premises are inspected regularly and registered annually.

Hairdressers

All hairdressing premises are required to comply with the Health (Hairdressing) Regulations 1980.

Basic requirements of the premises are included in our Conduct Items for Hairdressers guide​ (PDF, 100KB).

Registration is renewed each year on 30 June or if the business changes hands. Premises are inspected on an annual basis (the fee for this inspection is included in the renewal fee) unless a complaint is received in which case an inspection outside of the annual basis will be conducted.

A completed Application for Registration as a Hairdresser​ (PDF, 44KB) must be submitted to us. An environmental health officer will contact you for an opening inspection. You may not open until registration has been made and the environmental health officer has approved opening of the premises. An application fee is required to be submitted with the application.  Please refer to our Fees and Charges schedule (PDF, 148KB) for the appropriate fee.

Camping grounds
