Charitable collections licence

Street collections

A street collection permit allows the collection of money for charitable causes on the streets and in the towns of the borough.

Restrictions on collections 

To enable all collectors the best opportunity and prevent nuisance to the public, limits will be placed on the number of collectors in a given area. Collection permits will be offered on a first come, first served basis but consideration will be given to share the opportunities to collect within town on the more popular days, for example bank holiday weekends.  


Application for a street collection permit should be made at least one month before the proposed date of collection.
