Food premises registration

New food premises

Any business involved in the sale or preparation of food and located in the municipality, must register its premises with Council.

Register your food premises

To register your food premises with Council:

  1. Submit a New Food Premises pre-application form
    In the form, tell us the type of food you will be preparing and selling, and provide a plan of the premises, identifying the fittings, finishes and workflow of the premises.   An Environmental Health Officer will use this to assess if your premises comply with all relevant Food Act legislation.

    You may require a building and/or planning permits. For Building Services please contact 03 9298 4327. For Planning, please visit the Do I need a Planning Permit?  Page on the Maroondah website.

  2. Fit out your business

    Once your application is assessed and approved, you can fit out the food business knowing you are meeting all requirements. This also prevents structural changes being requested at the registration inspection. 

  3. Application to register
    If your business meets requirements satisfactorily at the registration inspection, you will be given permission to trade following the lodgement of an Application to Register and payment of applicable fee.

Classification of premises

Class 1 and 2 food premises must also submit a food safety supervisor certificate and maintain an appropriate food safety program on site.
