Beauty & Hair Shops
Beauty salons, hairdressers and skin penetration businesses whose activities are regulated by public health laws (below), must notify the Botany Bay City Council if they:
- close down/stop trading
- move to new premises
- open another business
- sell to a new proprietor
- change their trading name.
New businesses must complete a development application form, while existing businesses with a change of circumstances should submit the Premises Registration Application Form to the Botany Bay City Council to notify us of a new business or a change of ownership. A Council staff member may contact you if we require more information about your notification.
Please note that a fee is payable for some notifications.
What is a Skin Penetration Business?
The Public Health Act 2012 defines a “skin penetration business as any of the following,
- Ear piercing

To make sure operators are aware of their obligations to carry out safe, clean and hygienic procedures, Council’s Environmental Health Officers routinely inspect all premises on a yearly basis.
