Cats (and smaller animals)
We usually grant permission for cats, small caged animals, caged birds, fish and reptiles in tanks.
Unless you have a private garden with its own entrance, cats must remain in your home at all times.
You are only allowed to keep a dog if your home has a private garden and its own separate entrance.
Dogs must be kept on a lead in communal areas and mustn't enter children's play areas. They must not be allowed to foul in public or communal areas. Any fouling must be cleared up immediately.
Assistance animals are always permitted.
Pets we don't allow
We do not grant permission for any of the following animals to be kept as pets: livestock, wild animals, poisonous or endangered species, dangerous dogs.
Complaints about pets
We investigate complaints about pets. In most cases, we look to resolve the matter informally and by agreement. If this isn’t possible, we will consider a range of options for resolving the problem.
We also investigate complaints about an animal kept without permission. If the complaint is upheld, we ask the owner to re-home their pet and provide advice on how to do this.
