Dear Northampton Borough Council,

I would like to make a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act (2000).
I would like information on licenses to keep wild, dangerous or exotic animals, issued by the Council under the 1976 Dangerous Wild Animals Act.

Can I please request information on:
1. How many applications have been made for licenses in the past five years? 2016 - 2020 (This can include renewals of the license)

2. How many licenses are currently issued?

3. For what species of animal have these licenses been issued, and how many of each species?

Yours faithfully,

Russ Hunter
