Zoo StocklistsWednesday, 22 August 2018
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I request copies of the following;
1) For each premises with a Zoo Licence, a copy of the most recent zoo stocklist (outlining births, arrivals, deaths etc. in accordance with Section 9 of the Secretary of State's Standards of Modern Zoo Practice).
2) I would also like the same information (stock records) as stated above (1) for the past four years (From 2012 onwards to most recent) . As far as I understand, each annual stocklist runs from April to April each year.
- 3) For each premises with a Zoo Licence, return a copy of the most recent Zoo Inspection Report for “formal” periodical or renewal inspections carried out by Government-appointed Zoo Inspectors. Please ensure all pages (1-10) plus any pages with additional conditions are included.
The Zoo Licensing Act and associated standards require that a copy of the annual stocklist and inspection report is sent to the local authority. As the request is being made to the council for information that should be within its records, there should be no need to contact the zoo in relation to this matter. If you do need to contact the zoo to obtain this information, please let us know.
