Home Based Activities

The level of impact of your Home Based Activity (HBA) on the surrounding neighbourhood will determine how your Home Based Activity is assessed.

Nil fees on permits and licensing

As a business-friendly organisation, Gold Coast City Council has reduced all health licensing fees to nil for eligible properties whilst still maintaining the same level of service to business.
