Fireworks licence

You must have a licence in order to store or sell fireworks in Islington. This licence only allows you to sell or store fireworks at certain times of the year.

All licence applications must be submitted to us before the end of October each year to allow us time to process them before key dates. 

After you apply

Once we've received your application form we will:

  • send you an acknowledgement notification either by email or post 
  • aim to process the application within seven days from the date of the acknowledgement
  • inspect your site prior to a new licence being issued to ensure it is suitable for storing explosives
  • contact you if there are if there are any problems with your application to discuss the matter further.
