New Application also applies to any relocation of premises or change of licensee.

**Fees concerned from Veterinary Inspection are recharged to the premises after the bill has been received from the vet. The vet's bill is handled separately from the licence fee and is usually received after the inspection.

Vet's bills for additional visits to Riding Establishments and Zoos during the year, to add new animals, are charged directly by the vet to the premises. The Council is not involved in the charging for these.
