In general, people are allowed to keep animals, as long as they do not cause a nuisance or a health hazard to other people and premises around them.
Legislation exists to prevent nuisance and health hazards from being caused by keeping animals.
If you live in a council house, you are also bound by a contract of tenancy (part of which is a tenancy agreement), which prevents you from causing nuisance or health hazards by keeping animals.
