How to apply for permission
The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 allows tenants to apply to their landlord for permission to vary their tenancy agreement to conduct business from their council house.
The legislation includes restrictions in relation to:
- hours of business
- limitations on parking and delivery of goods
- the use of specified substances or materials
You should always tell us if you are conducting business from your home as you may need planning consent.
Please tell us if you are conducting business from your home as you may need planning consent. We may consider that your business involves a 'Change of Use' of the premises.
If you only wish to use your telephone number in connection with the business a formal application does not need to be made.
If you wish to apply to conduct a business from your council house contact your local housing office.
We will respond to your application within 28 calendar days of receipt.
