Food licences

Food licence fees, charges, and infringements are charged under the Food Act 2014 and Food (Fees and Charges) Regulations 2015.

The new Food Act 2014 (the Act) requires food premises to operate under a Food Control Plan or National Programme and has associated new fee-setting requirements for food premises registration, verification, and monitoring and compliance activities.
Existing food premises operating under the Food Hygiene Regulations 1974 have a three year transitional period (March 2016 - March 2019) in which to move to Food Control Plans or National Programme.
For new food businesses, the fees under the Food Act 2014 will apply.
Food premises subject to the requirements of the Act have up to three years to transition to the requirements of the Act. Until they transition to the new Act, such premises will be subject to the Council’s current fees.
Food Premises Fee (new - Food Act 2014)
Premises transitioning to Food Act 2014 - Registration paid under the Food Hygiene Regulations 1974 will be transferred to Food Act 2014 registration on a pro rata basis.
