Street collection permit
Application for a street collection permit
Street Collections are covered by Section 5 of the Police, Factories, etc (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1916,
An application for a Street Collection Permit can be made by downloading and completing an application form and returning it to The Democratic and Legal Manager no later than one month before the proposed collection date.
Only one Street Collection is permitted in any area of the Borough on a particular date, i.e. if there is a street collection in Brierfield, then another may be held in Colne on the same date but two collections cannot be held in Brierfield on the same date. Applicants are, therefore, advised to contact the Licensing Administration Officer so that the Licensing Register can be checked and, if available, a particular date can be reserved.
Upon receipt of an application, the form will be checked and, if it has been completed correctly, a Street Collection Permit will be issued.
Successful applicants will also receive a copy of our Street Collection Regulations, a copy of the suggested statement to be published in a local newspaper and two copies of a Form of Statement.
A completed Form of Statement must be sent to us within one month of the collection date. If the Form of Statement is not received, the applicant/organisation will be informed that we will not accept any further applications from that applicant/organisation.
You must be over 16 to take part in a street collection.
