COVID-19 Arrangements

In line with the Government’s advice about COVID-19, members of the public are not advised to visit the Brixham Laboratory site and D&S IFCA offices. D&S IFCA is still operating, but there are currently no D&S IFCA staff working on a regular basis within the Office.

If you wish to talk to a member of D&S IFCA’s staff, you have different options. The office number 01803 854648 provides an automated message and further details of who to call on specific mobile telephone numbers. The Permit Officer/Finance and Administration Officer can listen to messages on-line and respond if possible.

Permit Applications

If you wish to apply for a permit you can still do so online but please be aware that it may take longer than normal to process your permit application. D&S IFCA will continue to process permit applications but D&S IFCA is not able to advise fishers regarding their use with reference to Covid-19.
