My business is not run from home, but occasionally i need to do a day or two in the garage as there is not enough space at the location i am working.
Itcomes down to whether the council are saying you are running the business from homeor not. You don't actually need to run the business from home but all you needto do is carry out business activities at home and it means that they can bringenforcement proceedings against you.
Thecouncil will look at what you do, the noise that is produced and the frequency ofwhat you do. There is no definitive answer as to whether you are actually runninga business from home in this particular case but provided you have premiseselsewhere and this is literally just taking a little bit of work home for you,I think you would escape enforcement proceedings for running a business fromhome.
Doesthat answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
can i get any documentation stating that i am allowed to occasionally work from home as long as its within reasonable hours. If so how would i go about getting it.?
That is a Certificate of Lawful Use for existing use over 10 years or a Full Planning Application allowing this during restricted hours and with noise stipulations and stipulations regarding visiting customers and traffic. Before doing that I would write to the council, tell them what you are doing in full and ask them to confirm that you don't need planning consent. They will either say that you do or that you don't.
