Cost and duration of the new Temporary Pavement Licence

The Act caps fees at £100. The costs will exceed this maximum, and as a result, the fee within Birmingham will be £100.

The new licences are intended to provide temporary assistance to businesses, they are not replacing the Part VII Highways Act 1980 pavement café licences. Businesses may still apply for Part VII licences but the costs will be higher and the application process will be longer.

Licences applied for before the most recent extension legislation was made will expire no later than 30 September 2023.

If you make a new application and are granted a licence, it will expire on 30 September 2024.
