Licensing

We issue a variety of licences annually, covering everything from running a pub to keeping wild animals. We are also responsible for enforcing the terms of the licence.

If you are applying for a licence make sure you read all the relevant guidance. It may cause delays if your application is filled out incorrectly or any necessary documentation is missing.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of a licence or need help completing an application please contact the Licensing team for premises, personal and street trading,  Environmental Health team for animal licensing, skin piercing, and food registration or Taxi Licensing for hackney carriage and private hire licences.
