We are the Petroleum Enforcement Authority for Lincolnshire.

We can issue or renew a license for up to three years. It is not transferable.

When to tell us about storing petrol

By law, you must notify us in writing, if you store between 30 and 275 litres of petrol.

You must provide your name and address of the property where it is being stored.

You must confirm you are following the petrol storage guidance from the Health and Safety Executive.

You can email [email protected] or write to:
