We carry out the administration and functions for a wide range of licences (in addition to taxi, alcohol, entertainment and gambling licensing), which come under the category of ‘Other Licences’.
Charitable Street Collections
You will require a street collection permit to carry out a charitable street collection within the East Lindsey District Council area.
Charitable House to House Collections
A collection, which is conducted from door to door, requires a house to house collection permit. If the Charity holds a Home Office certificate of exemption then you only need to notify us of your intention to collect.
A competitive bidding licence may be required under the East Lindsey District Council Act 1982, if you are carrying out auctions. Application forms are available from our Licensing Team and must be accompanied by the current fee for a 5-year licence. If the proceeds of the auction are wholly or mainly for a voluntary organisation or charity then a licence is not required.
Sex Establishments require a licence under the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982. A sex establishment can either be a sex shop or a sex cinema.
We have allowed and prohibited certain streets for the purposes of street trading. Where a street has been designated a prohibited street no street trading is allowed. In those streets, which are consent streets a specific street trading consent is required from us before trading is allowed. Some types of trade (such as pedlars and news vendors) are exempt from the restrictions.
