This business owner runs a book exchange from his home in Port Macquarie, AU. The town he lives in has raised objections to his business in that it does not fix under their definition of a home-based business.
It isn’t entirely clear what provisions they do allow as a home based business, but this business illustrates what I refer to as the ‘traffic test’. If your home based business is going to draw traffic (I mean foot and auto traffic), then it may not be suited as a business to be run from home. And indeed, traffic is one of the reasons cited here as to why they want him to discontinue this.
