How to take part

Broxtowe Borough Council has worked with other licensing authorities in Nottinghamshire, so that a consistent approach is taken to assist applicants for licences under the Nottinghamshire County Council Act 1985 for Massage and Special Treatments and to promote a high level of safety standards for consumers.

The current conditions attached to such licences have been in need of modernisation, and this consultation is the conclusion of the work undertaken by relevant teams across all of the Nottinghamshire authorities, to promote and update the conditions attached to such licences.

A Massage and/or Special Treatments Licence is required under Part IV of the Nottinghamshire County Council Act 1985, by any person carrying on a business to provide the following services:

  • Full body and part body massage

  • Electric treatment

  • Radiant heat, light or electric vapour treatment

  • Sauna or other baths for therapeutic treatment

  • UV tanning equipment including sunbeds and sun showers

  • Laser and/or Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatment using Class 3B and Class 4 Lasers

All local authorities in Nottinghamshire, including Broxtowe Borough Council, have reviewed the conditions applied to Massage and Special Treatment
