If you are planning to start a new personal care or body art premises there are a number of requirements which must be met.
Multiple permits may be required depending on your needs and circumstance. You may require a planning permit and/or a permit for building works if you plan to change the use of an existing building. A building surveyor can advise on building permits if required and safety requirements for commercial premises. You should also contact Council’s Planning Department on 03 5471 1700 to determine whether you will require a planning permit.
You can also complete our business permit navigator which can provide further assistance in your enquiries.
