If you wish to place tables and chairs on the pavement, you will need to obtain a Highway Licence (usually known as a Pavement Café Licence) from us.
You may also need to obtain planning consent for change of use from public highway to pavement café.
What does it cost?
- A standard pavement café licence is granted for six years and the current licence fee is £600 per year, which is reviewable after three years
- We will also require a contribution towards the Legal costs in drafting the licence
As part of the application a 28 day public consultation is required, so we encourage you to apply for your licence with plenty of time in advance of you needing it.
It also take time to prepare the legal paperwork and to secure any other necessary consents.
