Home Based Businesses

A home-based business (HBB) is any business that is considered to be operating out of a dwelling unit. All home-based businesses require development approval before the business license can be processed.

Strict office and telephone business is considered a "Minor Home Based Business" and does not require an appeal period or notification of adjacent properties. For any other business, there is a 21-day appeal period for a "Major Home-Based Business" in which appeals may be made to the Subdivision and Development Appeal Board. Appeal fees are listed in the Fees and Charges Brochure.
