Street collection licences

Application process

How do we apply?

Applications can be made online via GOV.UK. It is wise to email the Licensing Team before you submit the application to check and see if your preferred area is not already in use by another collector on the date you wish to collect. You can email the team at [email protected].

Also please provide details of where you wish to collect from in the city centre.

How long will it take to process my application?

Within four weeks of the date you submit your application.

Will tacit consent apply?

Tacit consent will apply, this means that you will be able to act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from the Council by the end of the target period.

Please note tacit consent will only apply once a full application has been submitted and you have received an acknowledgment.

Supply a return for a street collection from Coventry City Council

Organisations who have previously held a collection should have submitted their returns within a month of the collection. You can complete a return form via GOV.UK.
