Pet permission application

Permission is not required for up to three caged birds (not including poultry), three small caged animals (such as hamsters) or for fish in an appropriate aquarium. Before filling in the form, please check the terms of your tenancy agreement for more information about keeping pets. 

Prohibited Pets

Dogs listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 and any animals listed in the Schedule of the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976 will not be given permission to live in one of our homes under any circumstances. This is to protect the health and safety of any customers and Group employees who may come into contact with them


We will refuse requests for dogs (other than assistance dogs) to be housed in flats, other than a ground floor flat that has its own entrance (not communal) and its own garden.

Sheltered Housing/Care and Support

Pets are not permitted in Supported Housing properties that are managed by the Supported Housing Team.


Under no circumstances will permission be given to breed or offer any animal(s) for sale from a Group property.
