From 21 July 2022 to 30 September 2023 the above amended act provides a streamlined and cheaper route for businesses such as cafes, restaurants and bars to secure a licence to secure a licence to place furniture on the highway. You can read the government guidance. In addition to this, please read our policy and guidance information.
Any applications for a licence beyond 11pm will only be considered if your premises employs SIA door security and the use of the tables and chairs is included in your risk assessment. Any applications for beyond midnight will be objected to and a committee hearing will be arranged.
You must apply online. The fee for this application is £100.
On the date of application you must erect a public notice and ensure that the notice remains on display for 7 days, following the date of application. This notice must be displayed where it can be easily read by passing members of the public at any time. Failure to do so will invalidate your application and require you to resubmit your application.
Following the 7 day consultation, the Council will have 7 days to determine the application.
The duration of all pavement cafe licences granted under the above act will be from the date they are granted until 30 September 2023.
