Street collections

Street Collections

Each local authority is empowered to regulate street collections and to issue licences.

Permits are only required if you plan to carry out a street collection in a public area. Permits are not required if the collection will be held inside a shop, public house or on private land, for example a supermarket, car park or entrance. In these instances you would need to get the permission of the manager or owner of the land.

The Borough is split into three areas: Faversham, Sittingbourne and the Isle of Sheppey. A Permit only covers one area, if you wish to collect in more than one area you must make this clear on your application form and separate permits will be issued.

Important information:

Permission must be obtained from Kent Highway Services on 0300 333 5539 if you would like a table or other furniture to assist with your collection.

Forms of Statement

Once the street collection is complete you will be required to complete a Form of Statement, which will be enclosed in the information sent to you. This must be returned to the Licensing Department within one month of the collection. Further permits will not be issued until the Form of Statement is returned.

Application Forms and street collection regulations can be downloaded below.
