Apply for a zoo licence

Do I need a licence?

Zoo licensing is a complex area and we liaise with Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) when assessing new applications and carrying out inspections. If you are considering applying you should contact us first to discuss further.

Current Fees and charges

The current fee is shown on our table of fees and you will also be required to pay for the services of a vet as part of the inspection.
