Licensing & Approvals


Council is committed to helping you build and operate a better, fully compliant business. To reduce the compliance burden and cost of compliance for business, Council has developed information relating to the following permits, licences, approvals and registrations.

South East Queensland Councils have collaborated to standardise information for a number of permits, licences, approvals and registrations. In these cases, you will be redirected to the Toolbox website.


Applicable fees are listed on each of the application forms in column two.

Conveyance searches

To establish the viability of purchasing a business, it is strongly recommended that the potential purchaser, apply for non-residential property information. This search may provide the potential purchaser with either a database report or inspection of the business for legal compliance pursuant to the relevant legislation.

New compliance strategy for operating temporary food stalls

Logan City Council introduced changes to the way temporary food stalls will be managed under the Food Act 2006. The compliance strategy approved by Council will mean that Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) will have greater ability to enforce existing powers in a more consistent manner. It will mean that both operators and the public will have a higher level of confidence that the food they are buying is safe.
