Dartford Borough Council wants to encourage its tenants and leaseholders to run their own businesses from home; however tenants and leaseholders must seek permission from the Council first, by completing an application form.

Conditions to Home Working:

The Council will not allow someone to work from home if:

  • It is likely to cause nuisance to neighbours
  • It is an illegal, improper or immoral activity
  • It would require major adaptation of the property or advertisement boards, or would damage the property in some way

The Council's Running a Business from Home Policy gives more details or you can contact a Housing Officer on 01322 343133
