Planning for Businesses

Working from home

If the answer to any of the following questions is "yes", then planning permission will probably be needed:

  • Will your home no longer be used mainly as a private residence?
  • Will your business result in a significant increase in traffic or people calling?
  • Will your business involve any activities considered 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?

Changing the use of a building

Planning permission may be needed if you intend to change the use of a building.

See apply for planning permission if you think you will require planning permission.
