Permit scheme



We are supporters of BASC's Wildfowling Permit Scheme.

If you are not currently a member of DWA, you may apply for a non-member’s permit from us. However, depending upon your needs, it may be cheaper to join DWA than to pay for a non-member’s fowling permit, especially if you intend visiting several times during the season. The fees for permits are as follows:
  • Single day £30
  • Whole season £200
Certain conditions must be met before our Wildfowling Officer can issue non-members with a wildfowling permit:
  • All applicants must hold a current shotgun certificate, unless they are a guest of a DWA wildfowling permit holder
  • All applicants must provide evidence of current third party and public liability insurance provided through an approved field sports organisation (such as BASC)
  • No non-members may shoot in Poole Harbour at weekends during September or October.
If you are interested in visiting us as a non-member, please Contact us for more information.
