Given several millions do some work at home (inc in home units) with many home-based businesses where is the line between what you can and cannot do. For instance, share trading or buying/selling on the internet might be permitted but what about counselling where a few clients may come into your unit by appointment, or a person who gives haircuts or botox injections by appointment - all done in strict privacy without noise, smells, risk of exterior damage etc. in any way ?
Does anyone know how to access legal precedents ?
If other residents make complaint, without proving they or the whole building is affected, does the EC have power to put a stop to work ? When by-laws stipulate "unit must be exclusively residential" can it be taken to not mean that in strict sense lest owners would then be banned from doing anything in their homes at all, whether a unit-based small business or bringing offive files home to work on after hours ?

This is the wrong forum for this question....

Development Consent governs use - you will need to speak with your local Council for guidance on the issues you have raised.
