Pavement Licences

As businesses reopen and customers return to our high streets, we need to imagine new, safer ways to serve them and provide space for people to get together. The Business and Planning Bill 2020 provides a cheaper, easier and quicker way for businesses to apply for a Pavement Licence. This has been extended until 30 September 2023 Local businesses are encouraged read the Governments Guidance: pavement licences and to apply with full details of their plans.

All applicants must display a completed Pavement Licence Site Notice so it is easily visible and legible on their premises.

All applications will be considered in line with best practice and guidance, but the safety and free flow of pedestrians must be prioritised.
