Pet shop licences

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9am and midday on Saturday 21 October, customers will be unable to view documents on the site during this time.

Apply for a pet shop licence if you own a shop that sells pet livestock.

Please note the following:

  • please return your completed form to the Licensing team with the £140 fee
  • pet shop licences last for 12 months
  • you'll need to renew the licence every year

We'll visit your premises and check you comply with the legislation and licence conditions before we issue your licence.

Tacit consent

We may be unable to issue your licence, so this process doesn't fall under 'tacit consent' parameters:

  • you cannot assume permission will be given
  • we consider the animals' welfare before issuing a licence
