Wyre Forest District Council is proposing to adopt a Policy and Guidelines in relation to its licensing responsibilities under the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013.
The provision of a policy and guidelines aims to provide residents, applicants and other agencies with a benchmark of the licensing authority’s expectations and will assist them in understanding statutory requirements. This document will also assist people to submit complete and accurate applications thereby reducing unnecessary work and delays.
The Council has prepared a draft Policy and Guidelines and now wishes to carry out consultation on this document with relevant parties and the general public.
The draft Scrap Metal Licensing Policy and Guidelines can be downloaded here:
The Council is keen to receive comments on the draft document, which will be considered before the finalised document is adopted. If you would like to make any comments on the draft document, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org – please use the subject line “Wyre Forest District Council Scrap Metal Consultation”.
Alternatively comments can be submitted in writing to:
Wyre Forest District Council Scrap Metal Consultation
Worcestershire Regulatory Services
Wyre Forest House
This consultation will remain open until 29 September 2017 and all comments received by this date will be considered by the Council before it adopts a Scrap Metal Licensing Policy and Guidelines.
