Our Health and Building Services Officers must conduct a registration inspection to ensure compliance with the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 and the Melton City Council Health Establishment Specifications. You can then apply for registration of your Health premises. Upon receipt of your Registration of a Public Health and Wellbeing Premises Certificate, you can begin trading.
A new proprietor of an already registered Health premises will have to apply for a ‘transfer of registration’ and a registration inspection is required.
Council will grant registration to the new proprietor and cancel the registration of the previous proprietor.
An optional request for Inspection and Report can be completed prior to settlement to identify outstanding non-compliances.
