Anyone keeping a dangerous wild animal must have a licence from us.
You can find out which animals need a licence by checking the Dangerous Wild Animals Act.
More information is available from the dangerous, exotic or wild animal conditions and guidance.
Apply for a licence
Fill in the application form and send it to us with the correct fee. A council authorised vet will then carry out an inspection before a two-year licence is granted. After that, there is a two-year licence renewal fee.
For more information, please contact us.
Visits to the licensing service are by appointment only. Please call us on 01423 500600 or email at [email protected]
