Street collections

March 2020 - update

In light of the Government's latest update on dealing with the Coronavirus. Please only submit licensing applications electronically for the foreseeable future.

Applications can be scanned or photographed (you need to ensure they are readable). If you need advice or have a query about an application or licence, please email licensing in the usual way by clicking here.

Please do not visit the Civic Centre unannounced, as we cannot guarantee that there will be anybody available to see you.  Please contact the licensing section in the first instance.
