In the current economic climate, a number of people are setting up their own businesses. If a residential property is used for business purposes, owners usually need to apply for change of use.
However, if working from home, one may only need permission if the answer to any of the following questions is 'yes':
- Will your home no longer be used mainly as a private residence?
- Will your business result in a marked rise in traffic or people calling?
- Will your business involve any activities unusual in a residential area?
- Will your business disturb your neighbours at unreasonable hours or create other forms of nuisance such as noise or smells?
