Our response


Silverband Falconry does not require a zoo license. We do not hold a stock list or have any zoo inspection reports or audits for the premises.

Eden District Council is not a unitary authority we do not issue Performing Animals Licences, in Cumbria they are currently issued by Trading Standards, Cumbria County Council.
