Obtaining appropriate approval(s) from Council can play a critical part in the success of any business enterprise – whether you are starting a business, expanding a business, changing the nature of our business activities or the location of your premises.
Planning controls have been introduced to make operating a business from home easier. Home-based businesses are now able to have one employee and floor space of 50 square metres, or one-third of the gross floor area of the family home (whichever is less) without requiring a planning permit.
If a permit is obtained, home based businesses are permitted a maximum of two employees and floor space of 100 square metres, or one-third of the gross floor area of the family home, (whichever is less).
A number of other requirements still need to be met to ensure the amenity of the neighbourhood is not adversely affected by an occupation conducted in or from a dwelling. Contact the Planning Unit for an information sheet.
There are a number of requirements that you must comply with if you intend to sell or serve liquor from your business premises. Contact the Planning Unit for an information sheet.
