Celebrity chef Pete Evans has been given approval to open a healing clinic in Byron Bay.
The business will be located in the Habitat precinct off Bayshore Drive.
Last month, Mr Evans was fined more than $25,000 by the Therapeutic Goods Administration for claiming a device he was selling could be used to treat COVID-19.
He promoted the “BioCharger” product, which has a price tag of nearly $15,000, in a Facebook live stream.
Yesterday, the Seven Network axed the chef from his judging role in a reality cooking show.
