Food safety

As part of our response to Covid-19 Council is waiving the Renewal of Registration fees for all premises registered under the Food Act and the Public Health and Wellbeing Act for the registration period 1 January to 21 December 2021.

Registration renewals will be issued in October, however there will be no fee attached.  You are still required to review, sign and return the registration in order for your Certificate of Registration 2021 to be issued.

Coming soon: look out for our new Portal which will enable businesses to update renewal details and make online payments.
