Welcome to Business, Licensing and Regeneration

Welcome to the Business, Licensing and Regeneration section. The Council is committed to supporting businesses in Wealden. We therefore offer a range of services that aim to cater for the needs of local businesses.

In this section, you can also view information on licensing, business rates and the regeneration of our market towns. Our procurement pages provide details of how you can sell your products and services to the Council.


We issue licences for the sale of alcohol, places of entertainment, takeaway restaurants, taxis (Hackney Carriage and Private Hire), pet shops, animal boarding, riding establishments and zoos.
