Based on what you said, our new policy does not require everyone to request permission to keep a pet, providing they meet specific requirements.
This means we will not unreasonably refuse permission to keep a pet in your home, but we must consider if it is fair for you, your neighbours and the animal you would like to keep.
If you have direct access to a secure garden for your exclusive use, our permission is not required for one dog and two cats. You will need to complete the application if you wish to keep an additional animal.
If you don’t have a garden for your exclusive use, you will need to seek permission to keep a cat or dog at your home.
No, you will not need our permission for these, but we may still ask you to rehome these pets should they cause any nuisance or cause damage to your home.
This will depend on your circumstances, pet type, and home.
You can apply for permission to keep chickens by writing to us, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to build any housing for the chickens, you will need to apply for permission here.
It is important to note that some of our homes have ‘No Pets’ covenants as part of the planning permission, which means that pets are not allowed.
Please use the handy flow chart below if you are still unsure if you need to ask permission.
If you need to ask our permission after using the flow chart, you can fill in the form below. Alternatively, you can download it here, print it off and send it back to us at:
