We can help you decide if you need a licence, what type of licence it is that you require, inform you of the fees, and send you the appropriate forms.

 

Those forms should be completed and returned with the fee, copies of plans of your premises (scale 1:100), including location of storage and the actual storage arrangements if applicable.  Cheques or postal orders should be made payable to Bedford Borough Council.

 

We will consider the application and associated documentation and advise you of the outcome.

 

 

Licence conditions

A licence is issued subject to strict conditions containing important safety requirements, which must be followed.  A copy of the conditions will accompany your licence.  The licence must be kept available on the premises in a site register.
