We work in partnership with Gov.uk to issue all of our licences online. You will be required to log-in to Gov.uk to apply for a licence in the Lewes district.
In addition to listing all licences required, the site also details the regulations your business should meet as well as providing further help and guidance.
Copies of photographs and basic disclosure should be uploaded with your application document. However, there may be an occasion when we need to contact the applicant to supply an original passport sized photograph.
- Site Licence: £375 (renewal and a new licence application)
- Collector: £255 (renewal and a new licence application)
- Variation: £75.
Licences are renewable every 3 years. To assist current licence holders a reminder letter and renewal form will be sent prior to that date.
Once we receive your completed application, together with any photographs, disclosure documents and fee, we will process it. The process requires us to consult with other Local Authorities who may have an interest, the Police, and to notify both the Environment Agency and East Sussex County Council.
Premises that are operating as scrap metal sites should ensure they have the requisite planning approval. Site operators should be aware that they require specific planning approval from East Sussex County Council. Further details can be obtained from:
