The Firearms/Shotgun Licensing Process

Firearms Licences Update – November 2021

The LMC has been advised by Essex Police that they are currently preparing their workload for next year (2022).  You may be aware that shotgun and firearms licences have to be renewed every 5 years and they wanted to make us aware that next year is a peak year for them in the renewal cycle.  They expect their workload to increase by 50% from January through to September 2022 and are conscious that this will inevitably filter down to GP surgeries where you will see an increase in demand for the medical form to be completed.  They do know how busy you all are and wanted to make you aware and thank you for your patience.
