Health and accommodation businesses

Council is responsible for registering and inspecting a wide range of businesses that operate in Nillumbik Shire. Examples include: 

Health Businesses

  • Hairdressers
  • Skin penetration businesses
  • Tattooists
  • Beauty therapy businesses 

Accommodation Businesses

  • Motels/hotels
  • Bed and Breakfasts
  • Guest accommodation
  • Caravan parks
  • Rooming houses 

Contact Environmental Health to discuss registration requirements. New premises require a plans approval application (below) as part of the registration process. If you design and construct a business without Council approval, registration may not be granted.

Transfer of business ownership

If there is an existing business registration an application must be made to Council to transfer the registration to the new owner of the business. You can get information on the current condition of the business and any issues that have been identified through inspections by an Environmental Health Officer. Consent from the existing owner must be obtained before Council can release information. This information can be obtained by completing the Pre Purchase Inspection form. It must be signed by the existing owner and person requesting the information. When settlement of a business purchase is complete, the completed transfer of registration form and relevant fee must be submitted to Council. Failure to do so can result in penalties.

Contact Environmental Health on 9433 3340 to obtain the relevant forms.
