West Suffolk Council

On 1 April 2019 Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council were replaced by a single district council called West Suffolk Council. We will continue to deliver the same services while finding improved ways of supporting communities, businesses and the local economy. You may notice changes to the website, forms, letters and emails, due to the change.

If you do not have a permanent premises, you will need to register with the licensing authority where you normally live. If you do not know who that is, find out at Gov.UK, find your local council
