Home Occupation

Commercial businesses are not allowed to operate within residential and non-urban zoning districts in Chesterfield. However, a "Home Occupation", as defined by the City's Zoning Ordinance, is allowed within those districts.

If you are starting a Home Occupation, you must obtain a Home Occupancy Permit and Business License from the City of Chesterfield. The Planning and Public Works Department reviews all requests for a Home Occupancy Permit.

The Home Occupancy Permit form must be submitted with the Business License Application. Both forms are available from the Finance/Administration Department or at the links below.
