Planning Permission

Has anyone any advice or tips about working from home performing Holistic & Beauty treatments from a planning point of view. I am setting up in a new location and don't want to take on premises to start with.

i decided to go mobile, for the time being,
there was so much red tape from my council, licence, implications for my mortgage, house ins, police and fire check.
Im glad i did, i have so few clients that it wouldnt be worth it at the moment, added to that i have a husband who works shifts, so arranging appts around that would have been difficult.
If you already have established business it might be worth it for you.

just to add i have a friend/therapist, only eight miles away, who has none of the above to comply with.
So really does depend on where you live.
