What happens next?
Before considering an application South Ayrshire Council must have received all the required supporting documentation
before the application is considered lodged. It is in the public interest that the South Ayrshire Council must process
your application before it can be granted. We would expect to process your application within 15 working days. If
you have not heard from us within a reasonable period, please contact us.
Will Tacit Consent apply?
In the interests of animal welfare, there is no automatic granting of a licence should we fail to respond to
you. Tacit Consent does not apply.
What if I have been refused approval?
