Apply for a pet shop licence

Pet shop licences are required for any building where pet animals are sold.  Sales cannot be made from market stalls.  

To apply for a licence you should complete the application form below and submit this to us with your payment of the current fee.  Fees are shown on the separate fees table.  This can be done by cheque (payable to Melton Borough Council) or you can pay using our online facility.

We will check your application and then an officer from Environmental Health will contact you to carry out an inspection.

If this is a new business you should also check that you have all necessary planning permissions in place.
