House to house collection licence

Application process

Applications must be made before the first of the month preceding the month of collection (i.e. before 1 March for a collection in April).

Once an application has been granted a 'Certificate of Information' is provided by Coventry City Council that the applicant has to send to HMSO in order to get a badge and Certificate of Authority for each collector. It is for this reason that the applicant should apply no later than the first of the month for a collection in the following month.

Does 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.
