We are currently carrying out the annual canvass of electors to update the electoral register. Please note that your canvass form may state that you or other people in your house are over 76. We gather this information for jury service purposes and our system defaults to this category if we do not hold a date of birth for an elector. If this information is incorrect please make the necessary amendments on the paper form and send it back to us in the envelope provided.
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.
