Zoo licence

If you would like to apply for a zoo licence please contact the licensing authority on:

These licences are required to ensure proper care and treatment of zoo animals, under the Zoo Licensing Act 1981.

All zoo's are required to be licensed to ensure that, where animals are kept in enclosures, they are provided with a suitable environment to provide an opportunity to express most normal behaviour, and to safe guard public safety. Circuses do not fall in the meaning of a zoo.

A fee of £507.00 + vets fees will be payable for a new licence and £634 + vets fees to renew an existing licence.
