 A licence is required under the Zoo Licensing Act 1981. A “zoo” is classed as any establishment, other than a circus or pet shop, where animals are kept for public exhibition. Initially, licences are granted for 4 years, and then are renewable every 6 years. The Act also requires, that, at least twice during the term of the licence, an inspection must be carried out by an Inspector appointed for that purpose by the Secretary of State.

The application will be determined within 6 months from the receipt by this authority of an acceptable and complete application because of the inspections required.

Renewal letters are sent approximately 9 months weeks before the licence expires.

For a valid application we require ALL the following forms/documentation in order to for the application to be processed. Incomplete applications will be returned.
