Home based beauty therapy

If you are looking to operate a business involving waxing, electrolysis, tweezing, pedicures, manicuring, tattooing or similar, the Advice for the Beauty Therapy Industry document may be useful. It should be read in conjunction with the Skin Penetration Code of Practice.


You will need to complete the Notification to Establish a Skin Penetration Premises form to register your business. Please forward this to our Health Service team.

Development Application

All 'home businesses' require planning and development approval but 'home occupation' may not. To determine the difference, download the Home Based Business approval/checklist. If you do require approval, both of these documents will need to be forwarded to our Planning Team along with any additional information required.

For more information call 9267 9267 and ask for the Environmental Health or Planning officer on duty.
