The Council aims to minimise the incidence or spread of infectious diseases through the administration and enforcement of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008. The information within this section outlines some industries that have special requirements under this act.
The Council requires personal care and body art businesses including hairdressers, beauticians, tattooists and prescribed accommodation businesses to be registered with the Council. These businesses and others are regularly inspected for hygiene standards and infectious disease control.

Public swimming and spa pools are also inspected and monitored to ensure water quality standards meet the Regulations of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008.
Information about tobacco and smoking is also available in this section, including important information for businesses.
