Pet shops

Pet shops that sell animals (not just pet supplies) need to be licensed by the Licensing Authority under the Pet Animals Act 1951.

The Council has adopted the 'Model standards for Pet Premises Licence Conditions' produced by the Local Government Association (LGA), which covers animal welfare and health & safety issues within the shop. You can download an electronic copy of the latest standards here, or if you need a printed copy, please write to us at (please see our full contact details).
