We are sorry for the issues some residents are experiencing with their waste collections. Report a missed bin here.


You must ask for permission to keep a pet and if this is granted we will confirm it in writing to ensure that there is a record of permission being approved. Please think about whether your home is suitable for a pet, for example a flat may not be the best place to keep a dog.

The Council may not give permission for you to keep a pet, especially if it is an unusual pet.

Assistance dogs for people with disabilities will be allowed.

If you keep a pet, you must:

  • Always keep it under control and do not allow it to damage your property
  • Not allow it to cause a nuisance or danger to any person. You will be in breach of your tenancy if you allow your pet to cause a nuisance, such as a dog barking continually, and we may take legal action against you
  • Not allow your pet to foul in communal areas and follow guidelines for cleaning up after your pet in public spaces
  • Dogs must be kept on leads when outside your home or garden
