North East Lincolnshire Council

Animal establishment licence

From 1 October 2018 there will be a single animal establishment licence, The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) Regulations 2018, which covers the following licensable activities:

  • selling animals as pets
  • boarding and day care for cats and dogs
  • hiring out horses
  • breeding of dogs
  • exhibiting animals or training animals for exhibition

Guidance notes providing information of the changes for each type of premises can be read in the related document section below. Please note that all existing licensed premises will continue under the current licence. When it is time to renew your licence you will need to meet the requirements of the new regulations.

Further explanation of the guidance published by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) can be found on the Canine and Feline Sector Group website.

If you have any queries about the new regulations then please contact the Licensing team on 01472 326299 or email licensing@nelincs.gov.uk.
