Street collections permit
Permit application process
A street collection permit is required by any charity or a person who wishes to raise money for a local charity or a national charity, or if you want to raise money for a particular cause - such as an appeal due to a natural disaster and that involves collecting money or selling articles by standing in a public place in Calderdale.
Your application will be granted unless:
- There is another organisation collecting on the same day and in the same area in which you wish to collect. If there is then your application will be refused;
- You have collected in the same area of Calderdale within the past twelve months then your application will be refused.
You will be issued with a street collection permit if your application is granted or you will be advised in writing if your application is refused.
There is no statutory right of appeal against the Council refusing you a street collection permit.
You can apply for this licence online via Business Link, part of the EUGO network.
