There are limitations and restrictions on the number and types of animals that can be kept in different areas. These are outlined in Subordinate Local Law no 2 (Animal Management). The restrictions take into account the size and density of the area, type of animal, and potential impacts on the surrounding community. Permits are assessed on a case-by-case basis and require justification for application and inspections. There is a non-refundable application fee and there is no guarantee the permit will be approved.
