Exemptions

Some charitable organisations are exempt from having to apply for a house to house collection permit, but must still tell us the date or dates that they plan to collect on. We can then try to ensure that other collections are not authorised at the same time. Contact us for more details.

Refused applications

If your application is refused you can contact us to discuss this.
