Site Alert: System Maintenance

Due to scheduled system maintenance, a number of our systems including Public Access (planning) and Modern Gov (Councillor, Committee and Meeting info), will be intermittently unavailable between 1pm and 6pm on Saturday 23rd September. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Street Collecting

You need a street collection permit if you are collecting money or selling goods for charitable purposes on a street or in a public place

When issuing street collection permits, we aim to ensure that no more than two collections happen in the same place on the same day. 

Apply for a permit

You must apply for a licence at least one month before the first collection date. 


It is free to apply for a street collection licence.

After you have carried out a collection

You must submit a return of:

  • what has been collected; and
  • how much has been passed to the charity after any deduction

You need to do this even if no money was collected. Failure to make a return may result in future collections being refused.
