Policy on giving permission for pets

North Kesteven District Council will give permission in most cases. However, certain types of pet are not permitted, including:

  • Farm animals - for example, sheep, goats, pigs, cattle, and horses.       
  • Animals that should be licensed under the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976 - a list of animals requiring a license under the Act can be found on the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ (DEFRA) website.
  • Breed of dogs specified in the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 - in 2006 the Pit Bull Terrier, Dogo Argentino, Fila Braziliero and Japanese Tosa were included in this Act. Up to date information can be found on the DEFRA website.

Permission may not be granted where there is an ongoing problem with pet ownership in the household or there has been a problem in the past.
