Health and Safety registrations

From 6 April 2009 employers no longer have to register premises in which their employees work with either the Local Authority or the Health & Safety Executive. The requirement to register was been removed following a consultation by the Health and Safety Executive to reduce red-tape for businesses. However, certain high-risk activities still need a registration or a licence from the Council.

Please see our section on Public Health licences for further information.

Whether you own a pub or food outlet, are a street trader, own an exotic animal or drive a private hire vehicle, you may need a licence or some form of consent from the Council.

Please refer to our Directory of Licences to see what applies.
