Planning changes for home businesses

Proposed changes to legislation, announced by the Business Secretary, Matthew Hancock, aim to boost the start up of new businesses. The changes include a clarification of the planning regulations regards a tenant of a residential rental property running a business from the property.

The changes were announced on Friday, and are hoped to help dismiss concerns that landlords might have over the status of a tenancy agreement when a tenant starts running a business from the property.

The Prime Minister said: “I want us to be a nation of entrepreneurs that really respect entrepreneurialism and enterprise, something that we imbue in young people in our schools. I want this to be the best country in the world to start, to run, and to expand a new business. We are still some way away from that.”
