These are premises,
which provide a wide variety of treatments, the main ones being
sauna, massage and sun beds.
Special treatments also include all beauty
treatments provided by salons i.e. leg waxing, manicure, and
pedicure, facials, eyelash tinting, electrolysis etc.
Besides the premises for special treatment having
to be licensed, the therapist who provides the treatment also has
to be registered with the council. Treatments are given by persons
who are approved by the Council. The Council will only approve
people that are appropriately qualified and experienced. Checks are
also made to ensure that every qualification certificate received
is authentic and checks are also made for any previous criminal
convictions against the licence applicant.
It is an offence for any person to
administer or advertise the availability of a special treatment,
without a licence; unless there is an exemption in force. Any
person found guilty of an offence may be liable on summary
conviction to a fine of up to £2,500.
A copy of the relevant legislation can be viewed
at the Council Offices where you can also obtain an application
form and a copy of our standard conditions.
