If you want to organise a house to house collection for a charity in Warrington, you’ll need a permit/licence from us.
Anyone over the age of 18 who will be collecting on behalf of a registered charity.
Here’s our policy on house to house collections:
You should apply at least 28 days before the day of your collection. This gives us time to consider your application.
You can apply for any area in Warrington.
There are no fees for this type of licence.
We aim to process your application as soon as possible. If you have not heard from us within 28 days of your application, you can assume that your application has been granted.
Please contact us in the first instance. However if you can’t reach a satisfactory outcome you must appeal within 14 days of the refusal.
If a member of the public has a complaint about your licence, we always advise for that person to contact you directly, preferably in the form a letter with proof of delivery.
Any person objecting to an application for the grant, renewal or transfer of a licence may give written notice of their objection to the council, stating the grounds of the objection, within 28 days of the date of the application. Please email email@example.com
