A guide to businesses from home

As a result of changing economic circumstances and Government policy over recent years there has been a marked increase in the number of self-employed people in the country.  This trend has also affected employment characteristics in Melton Borough.

In many instances, self-employed people provide services which require no special premises, and therefore operate from their homes. Many small businesses and other non-residential uses are started by people working in their own homes, and technological innovations, particularly computer developments, are likely to increase the incidence of home-working in the future.
