Start and grow your business in Liverpool

Your business may need to have planning approvals in the form of development consent or building approvals. Council will determine whether you need to make any applications for approval, or to obtain special licences for such things as pollution, hazardous materials storage or waste disposal. If you are setting up a business in the Liverpool local government area, visit the page on Liverpool's Planning Controls to see if any of these applications are applicable to you.
