Hair and Beauty Premises

Premises where hairdressing, skin penetration and beauty procedures are carried out are regularly inspected by Council's Environmental Health Officers to ensure they are compliant with hygienic requirements.

If you are establishing a business or taking on an existing business that conducts activities that penetrate the skin or intend to introduce this procedure, approval is required from Council. Operating your skin penetration business without development consent is an offence.

Skin penetration procedures include the following:

  • Waxing
  • Electrolysis
  • Needling
  • Tattooing (including cosmetic tattooing)
  • Ear and body piercing
  • Acupuncture
  • Colonic lavage
  • Cuticle cutting such as pedicures and manicures
  • Microdermabrasion

Registration with Council

All skin penetration businesses and hairdressers (including mobile operators) are required to be registered with Council. Council’s registration form can be found here.
