Animal Licence Fees

Please note that where it is necessary to obtain a vet’s report, for any licence type, then a further cost will be incurred. This additional cost is not included in the application fee. Either the applicant can produce satisfactory evidence in the form of a vet’s report or we, as licensing authority, can commission the vet’s report. In both cases applicants will be responsible for the vet’s fees. In the latter case fees will be invoiced by us or passed on. These fees are payable whether or not the licence is ultimately granted.
