Your application will be assigned to a Health Officer for assessment. If further information is required to complete the assessment, the Health Officer will contact you.

Applications tend to take approximately 2 weeks to be assessed. However, this depends on the complexity and level of information provided on lodgement and also whether comments are required from other government agencies.

If required, the Health Officer will carry out an inspection of the premises to ensure it complies with legislation.

The Health Officer will seek your advice on your preferred opening time and will endeavour to carry out the inspection prior to this.

Once the application is finalised, the approval will be emailed to the you, along with any relevant information.

Access lodgement forms and fees

Next step: Arrange final health inspection (if required)

A site inspection of your premises will need to be conducted by a City Health Officer.

An inspection by a City Health Officer usually occurs when the premises fit-out has occurred and before the final approval to operate is issued. A Health Officer can visit earlier if you need assistance ie. before the fit-out approval is issued. Contact us to arrange your inspection.
