You must obtain a licence from the council to keep a boarding establishment such as a cattery or kennel.

Before we grant a licence you must be able to demonstrate that the accommodation is suitable and the animals are well fed, exercised and protected from disease and fire.


The licence fee for 2016 to 2017 for commercial boarding is £200.

The licence fee for home boarding is £105 (new applications) and £96 for renewals. The license is renewed annually
