We are thinking of running residential cooking courses from our farm house in the new forest for ocassional weekends with max 6 people staying. what are the regs surrounding this and what would we need to do?
This answer is a little vague - what exactly is the ruling? I thought that under 6 people gave some dispensation or leeway? Do we require an official change of use and could we get public liability etc insurance without it? What are the rules around a fire certificate - i didnt think it was necessary for occasional use under 6 people? The EHO would surely only be interested if we were producing food in volume for public resale or consumption? In reality would we face many issues if we had a few people staying twice a month?
Hi, I am a moderator for this topic. It seems the Professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new Professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
