Home Business – St Clair Florist

Project Description

iPLAN PROJECTS assisted with a submission to Penrith City Council convincing them that the proposed home business of a ‘florist’ was permissible with consent.  Council was seeking to prevent home businesses in a residential zone that attracted customers, due to pressure from competing businesses in a local shopping centre.  We correctly interpreted the local planning instrument definitions to ensure this home business can contribute to the local economy, whilst ensuring Council did not block permissible land uses based on competition alone.
