If you store, prepare, distribute or sell food you must register your food premises with the council at least 28 days before opening.
Registration is free and applies to most types of food businesses, including restaurants, cafes, hotels, shops, canteens and market stalls, as well as temporary premises such as mobile catering and food delivery vans. If you have more than one premises you will need to register all of them.
You can apply to register your food business online at GOV.UK.
Alternatively, complete the application form and return it by post to:
Pubic Protection and Licensing,
5th Floor West,
Westminster City Hall,
64 Victoria Street,
London SW1E 6QP
If there is a change to your food business after registration has been processed please contact the Food Team to let them know.
