Otters and licensing

Otters are given protection under the Conservation (Natural Habitats, &c.) Regulations 1994 (as amended)  as European protected species.  Licences are available for certain purposes to permit actions that might otherwise constitute an offence in relation to otters.  Advice is provided below on licensing requirements for common scenarios in relation to otters and the places in which they live.  Links to the appropriate forms and guidance are given for situations where a licence is required.

For further information or advice please email licensing@snh.gov.uk or telephone 01463 725364.
