Any person who wishes to sell animals either from a domestic address, commercial establishment or over the internet requires a licence.
There are strict guidelines and conditions applied to the licence to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all the animals.
Making an application
You can apply, renew a licence and pay via GOV.UK.
The licence fees for 2017 is initial £160 and renewal £115.
Once the application is received, it will be processed and an officer from the council will visit to inspect the establishment. If it is found to be satisfactory a licence will be granted.
