Home based business checklists

The City of Swan encourages home based businesses because they make such an important contribution to the City's social and economic wellbeing.

Whether you're in a residential or rural area, we can help you establish your home business with a minimum of red tape.

All ‘home businesses’ are required to submit a Planning Application for approval, but ‘home occupation’ may not. To determine the difference, download Home Based Business Approval/Checklist. If you do require approval, both of these documents will need to be forwarded to the City’s Planning Team along with any additional information required.

Depending on the type of business you are looking to do from home, you may also need to submit applications to the City’s Health Services team.

For more information call 9267 9267 and ask for an Environmental Health or Planning officer on duty.
