Dangerous Wild Animals
We will look at various matters when considering whether to grant a licence, including public safety or nuisance, suitability of the proposed licence holder and animal welfare. The proposed premises must be inspected by our chosen vet, for which you must pay the fees.
We may refuse a licence on any grounds. If a licence is issued, it will be valid for the remainder of the year in which it is issued, and must be renewed each year. Each licence issued will be subject to conditions that will ensure standards are maintained and the premises may be inspected at any time.
