You need a licence from the local authority to operate a boarding kennel or cattery, a home boarding establishment for dogs or a commercial day boarding establishment for dogs.
An applicant must not be disqualified from any of the following at the time of the application:
If your application is deemed non-contentious, we should be able to grant your licence without referring the decision to the Licensing Committee. 'Non-contentious' means any application which has not resulted in any objections or representations of a serious nature, and where is no conflict with council policy. Contentious applications will be determined by the Licensing Board.
We will attach conditions to any licence we grant or renew and we may take action to ensure that you comply with those conditions.
We aim to make a decision on your application within 90 calendar days of you submitting to us all the documentation we require. This assumes that your application is not contentious. Your application will take longer to process if it becomes contentious (for example, if we receive objections or representations) and if that is the case we will keep you informed of the revised timescale.
'Tacit authorisation' does not apply because there is an overriding reason relating to the public interest, namely the need to protect the health of animals. Therefore if you have still not received a decision after the target time has expired, your authorisation is not granted automatically. In such a situation, we will get in touch with you to let you know what happens next.
Please note that you must not carry on the activity for which you have applied for a licence unless or until you have been granted a licence.
If you are unhappy with the way we have processed your application please contact us.
