Animal Welfare Licensing
To ensure animal welfare matters are properly addressed, certain specified categories of premises are subject to licensing regimes.
Brentwood Borough Council is responsible for the issue of the following licences:
- Pet Shops
- Animal Boarding Establishments (cats and dogs)
- Dog Breeding
- Dangerous Wild Animals
- Riding Establishments
All premises are inspected by our Licensing Team and where necessary an independent vet to ensure their suitability before the licence is granted.
The application fee for all application types can be found on our Licensing Fees and Charges page.
There is an additional charge for our appointed vet's inspection, payable after the inspection has taken place.
