Before you start

Section 6(1) of the Zoo Licensing Act 1981 states that you must apply to renew your zoo licence 6 months before the licence expires.

We also need to re-inspect the zoo by that date, so please send us your application at least 8 months before the licence expires. 

This gives us enough time to re-inspect the zoo.

We may not need to re-inspect the zoo where a direction has been issued by the Secretary of State under Section 14 of the Zoo Licensing Act.
