Options for those wishing to start a new pavement café as soon as possible

The quickest and lowest cost option to obtain a licence to provide seating and tables for the service of food associated with an adjacent business will be to apply for a new temporary pavement licence.

You may still apply for a Part VII Highways Act licence but the fees are considerably higher and there is a statutory 28-day consultation period before we can begin to determine the application.
