New temporary pavement licences

To assist the hospitality sector in its recovery, the Government has introduced a new type of Temporary Pavement Licence under The Business and Planning Act 2020.

This new type of licence establishes a quicker and lower cost option for businesses to obtain permission from the council to place tables and chairs outside their premises on the pavement (and certain other types of Highway where vehicles are restricted such as pedestrian zones).

The government has also produced some guidance for businesses, which can be found on the government website.
