Civic miscellaneous licence holders: COVID-19 guidance

The Licensing Department has received a number of enquiries and questions from licence holders in respect of their licences and the effect of the current COVID -19 pandemic. This page has been designed to help answer the most frequent queries and recurring questions we have received.

The licences covered by this guidance are:

  • animal boarding establishments
  • animal breeding establishments
  • dangerous wild animals
  • riding establishments
  • pet shops
  • cinemas
  • venison dealers

Licences due to expire

If you have a licence which is due to expire in the near future and are able to complete your application, please submit it. If there are any difficulties in submitting your application electronically, please contact the Business Support Team so that they can assist you.

In relation to some animal licences it may not be possible to carry out vet inspections at the moment. We would ask however that you continue to submit your renewal applications at this time. The vet inspection will be carried out as soon as it’s safe and practicable to do so. Your licence will remain in place while this is pending.

For the avoidance of doubt, the licences above HAVE NOT been extended by Angus Council and the expiry date has remained the same for all of them.

Face to face appointments

Due to the UK and Scottish Government Guidance on COVID-19 we are not currently offering appointments at Angus House, Orchardbank Business Park, Forfar.

Be safe

We would like to also take the opportunity to remind the trade to keep safe and adhere to the official advice and guidance issued by both Scottish and UK Governments for your safety.
