RESOLVED – That Executive approves and adopts the Animal Welfare Policy.


Reasons for the decision:

It was considered to be good practice to have a policy setting out how the Council inspects and licences establishments under the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018.


Alternative options considered:

The policy was considered necessary so that members of the public are aware of the standards and how the Council operates, and so that animal licensed premises are aware of what is expected of them.
