Consultation on Draft Statement of Licensing Policy and Guidelines for Scrap Metal
Gloucester City Council are currently consulting on a Draft Policy for Scrap Metal and members of the public are being asked for their views.
Metal theft over recent years has had a significant impact on communities, businesses and local authorities alike. The Scrap Metal Dealers At 2013 has been created to help prevent some of the previous issues surrounding the sale, collections, storage and disposal of scrap metal.
The Policy outlines the requirements of the Scrap Metal Dealers Act 2013 and gives guidance to new applicants, existing licence holders, consultees and members of the public as to how the Council will administer and enforce the requirements of the Act.

Feedback will be taken into consideration and presented to the Licensing and Enforcement Committee for final approval on 15th July 2014.
