Who Should Apply
A licence is required if you wish to make a collection for charity in the Lewes district by:
- street collections
- house to house collection
At least 28 days notice is required of the proposed collection. We try to ensure only one organisation is authorised to carry out a collection in any given area over a set period.
However, we have no official powers to restrict charitable organisations that wish to carry out collections under their Home Office Exemption Certificate, even if these collections may clash with a Local Authority permitted collection.
We work in partnership with Gov.uk.
On receipt of a satisfactory application, we will allocate the dates subject to availability and issue a permit. This will be sent to you, together with a copy of the regulations and other paperwork.
The return form should be sent back to us within one month from the date of the collection.
