Animal Welfare Licence Appeals

The Council can refuse to give a licence and has powers to suspend, vary or revoke licences where appropriate. If your licence is refused, revoked or varied you can appeal to the First-tier Tribunal in the General Regulatory Chamber.

You have 28 days to appeal after a notice of our decision has been sent to you. The tribunal is independent and can decide to overturn, alter or confirm the council’s decision.


If you have concerns about animal welfare at one of our licensed establishments, please inform us by using the details below.
