How do I apply for a licence?

You will need to complete the Icon for pdf Scrap Metal application form [1.01MB].

Along with this application form you must submit all supporting documentation - applications without all supporting documents will not be accepted:

  • Basic Criminal record, no older than three months old on the date of application, this can be obtained from Disclosure and Barring Service.

  • The appropriate fee (£317.43 for a Scrap Metal Site Licence) (£222.98 for a Scrap Metal Collectors Licence) paid by debit card, credit card or by cheque made payable to Breckland Council.

  • A passport size photograph for a collectors licence.

  • Photographic ID for both licences i.e. Passport or DVLA drivers licence photo card - if you do not have a passport or DVLA drivers licence photo card you will be required to get a photo endorsed as a true likeness by a solicitor, notary, lecturer or other professional person (Icon for pdf Photograph Endorsement Sheet [38.15KB]).

  • Plan of the site showing the area to be licensed - where the scrap metal business will be taking place (Scrap Metal Site Licence only)
