Pavement Licensing Application

The Business and Planning Act 2020 has been enacted by the Government in an attempt to restart the British economy due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The Act has introduced a range of new measures to help businesses to quickly adjust and adapt to the 'new normal'. The Act has introduced a new Pavement Cafe Licensing regime.

Licence to Put Tables and Chairs on the Street or Pavement

If a pub, bar, restaurant or cafe would like to have seating for customers outside of their property and on a public highway then they must have a licence to do so. A public highway includes roads, pavements and verges.
