Council regularly inspects certain types of business to make sure they’re following state rules for health and safety. This includes a wide range of businesses such as cafes, restaurants, beauticians, tattooists and body piercing service providers.
Usually a fee applies to each inspection.
To help ease the financial burden on local businesses, from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022, we waived fees for food premises and personal grooming businesses for:
- their first annual scheduled inspection
- administration fees for inspections.
To learn more about inspections and current fees, see our Health and Safety Rules page.
