Working from Home

Bassendean Welcomes You

The Town encourages working from home and home based occupations. It is recognised that they contribute to the local economy, help with passive surveillance and naturally they generate employment.

The Local Planning Scheme identifies five activities carried out within or from home: Home Office, Home Occupation, Home Business, Home Store and Industry – Cottage.

A “Home Office” can exist as a right, you do not need a permit for it. For the others you need to apply to the Town for a permit.



I make custom made sunsuits for dogs that have skin cancer and contact allergies. It's mainly on veterinary referral. It's an online business. Most of the product gets sold to the Eastern states and I do sell overseas to America and New Zealand as well.
