A pavement licence allow licence holders to place removable furniture over certain highways adjacent to the premises in relation to which the application was made.
A new streamlined process has been introduced to allow businesses to secure these licences in time for the summer. These licences will usually remain in place for a year but not beyond 30 September 2021.
Alternatively, a Pavement Cafe licence issued under the Highways Act 1980 can be applied for if you wish to continue to place removeable furniture on the highway beyond 30 September 2021.
Licensing officers are following government and Council advice relating to the Coronavirus in terms of working arrangements, social-distancing and, where appropriate, self-isolation.
We will not be meeting face-to-face with any applicants or licence holders and therefore you are asked to make any enquiries via email to email@example.com.
Applications must be made electronically during this period. You should attach scans or photographs of any relevant documents and email them to the team at the above address.
