What are the rules?
If you want to set up a home business you need to consider:
- zoning - whether you can operate your business in your area
- if you need to modify your building to accommodate the business
- signage rules
- food handling requirements (if you are going to operate a food business)
- getting the appropriate licence to operate.
Start by speaking to one of our planners about zoning and checking with our licensing team if you need a licence to operate. These meetings are free and can be held over the phone, or in person.
Contact us on 09 301 0101 to arrange a meeting or to speak to a planner or someone from our licensing team.
