We are currently experiencing issues with our bin collections which means we have not been able to make it to some properties on the scheduled day. We apologise to everyone affected by this. To help alleviate the issue whilst a long-term solution is devised, we are suspending garden waste and glass, cans and plastic collections for up to two months from 8 July 2019. More details.
Exotic, dangerous and wild animal licences
If you have a wild, exotic or dangerous animal and you are not running a zoo, circus, pet shop or laboratory then you will need to apply for a licence from us.
What animals are covered by the licence?
You can find out more information about the licence, including what animals are covered on the Gov.uk website.
How do I apply for a licence?
To apply for a licence from us:
- Download and complete the application form to apply for a new licence, or to renew an old one
- Enclose the relevant fee as shown in our fees and charges document - include a cheque made out to Allerdale Borough Council
- Send to the Food and Occupational Health team at our offices in Workington
We will not issue a licence until the conditions are met. These conditions will depend on the particular animal.
