Are you constructing or altering a Public Health and Wellbeing premises?

If you are constructing a Public Health and Wellbeing premises (hairdressing, beauty therapy, skin penetration, aquatic facility or prescribed accommodation) or your premises requires structural alterations, we offer a plans assessment service that provides written advice prior to the construction commencing or finalising. This will ensure the premises complies with the structural requirements.

We recommend you use our personal care and body art premises guidelines when planning your premises. 

This plans assessment service may be useful to help reduce costly mistakes before the construction finalises or starts. During the construction period you can organise for an Environmental Health Officer to come onsite for progress inspections. This is free of charge if you have submitted a plans assessment application. 

Your plans should

  • show the layout of all fixtures and equipment
  • provide a description of materials used for surface finishes including walls, floors and bench tops

How long does it take?

The submitted plans are processed and endorsed within 20 working days. We will assess your plans and notify you in writing once your plans have been endorsed. An endorsed copy of the plans will be returned to you and then you can commence works, provided all other necessary permits have been obtained.
