Co-working space as an alternative to a home office

Co-working facilities may be accepted as an alternative to conventional home-working space, provided that:

  • The space is conveniently located and adequately sized for all users and must provide one compliant work space for each residential unit, in line with the requirements for an individual home office.
  • Each individual working space is compliant with Criteria 2a, 2c and 2d. However, in recognition of the various technological advances which have taken place, Criterion 2b may now be considered as met, where it can be demonstrated that the intent of the requirement for connectivity has been fulfilled by other means.

This seeks to recognise the emergence of co-working facilities as alternative places of work.
