To collect money or sell articles for the benefit of charitable or other purposes in Teignbridge, you will need a street collection permit from us. There is no fee for this permit.
Charities will only be granted permission for one collection per area per year.
If you intend to collect on private property (e.g within a supermarket or private land) you will only require the landowner's permission. You will not require a permit from us.
