General Licences for Birds - 2021

Below are our General Licences for Birds valid for 2021.

The suite of 2021 General Licences are similar to those published with effect from 1st April 2020.  

Anyone intending to use General Licence 01, 02 or 03 from 1st April 2020 onwards on certain Special Protection Areas and Special Areas of Conservation must comply with site based standing conditions, covering disturbance of species and damage to habitats.  If you can meet the standing conditions then you can proceed with your activities without the need to contact us.  If you cannot meet the standing conditions set out for the site then you will need to apply for a permission by contacting our Licensing team at [email protected].

If you are looking for General Licence 14/2021 for stoat trapping, you will find it on the Stoats - Licence forms and guidance page.



If you already have a licence number, include it in the subject line of your email, or have it to hand when you call.
