If you live in a house, or a flat with a front door that opens directly to the outside, you may keep a pet, if you get our written permission first.
We will normally only allow a dog if you live on the ground floor and have sole access to a garden that is properly fenced and secure.
It’s your responsibility to make sure that your dog does not cause a nuisance to neighbours. If we give you permission, you must keep your pet under control and ensure that it doesn’t foul any shared areas in your building.
We will refuse permission to keep any dog covered by the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, or any other dog that appears to have been bred for fighting. We can take back our permission if we believe any animal is causing a nuisance, or is a danger to other people.
Registered guide dogs for the blind, and hearing dogs for the deaf, are exempt from these rules.
