We are committed to helping you build and operate your business. To operate a business in Logan City, you need to meet relevant licensing requirements.
Licensing helps to make sure that all businesses in Logan operate in a way that is safe and complies with our local laws.
Some activities can create public health risks, environmental impacts or impacts on local buildings and amenity. Licensing gives us the ability to check and regulate these activities.
Our local laws set out the conditions for each prescribed activity (Local Law No. 9 (Licensing), Local Law No. 12 (Council Property and Other Public Places) and the Subordinate Local Laws).
Licence conditions make sure that activities do not:
harm human health or safety
cause property damage or loss of amenity
cause environmental harm or environmental nuisance
cause a nuisance in general.
Relevant activities are inspected and licensed yearly.
Before you apply for a local law licence, you should check to see if you need approval under our planning scheme. This is called a development permit. Some prescribed activities need a development permit to use the land for a specific activity.
To see if you need a development permit, or for more information about licensing, please call us on 07 3412 3412 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
