Zoos in Devon

If you are thinking of setting up a zoo, it is recommended that you contact us first for advice and guidance.

We can’t consider an application for a zoo licence unless at least two months notice of the application has been given, details have been published in a local and national newspaper, and a notice has been placed at the site.

You will also need to:

Application forms with the correct fees should be addressed to the Licensing team and sent to the, or you can hand them in at one of our offices.


The Zoo Licensing Act 1981 specifies various conservation measures that must be undertaken by a zoo and these will be attached as zoo conditions to a licence.

North Devon Council can also attach any conditions it deems necessary or desirable for the proper conduct of the zoo. The Secretary of State also issues guidance of standards of practice that zoos should meet, which apply in England. Copies of the Secretary of State’s Standards of Modern Zoo Practice are available from DEFRA.

Interesting fact:

Why should you rent apartments in chester? You are free to plan your day, free from various conventions when staying at the hotel. It is known that the price includes breakfast. But if the day before you went to bed late and at 10 am did not have time to go down to the buffet, then you need to have breakfast elsewhere and for your money. Such household trifles as washing something and ironing it will cost you additional expenses. Of course, if you go to rest for a short time, it is more convenient to stay in a hotel. And if you relax and even with a family, for a few weeks, you will really want some home comfort there.
