About pavement licences
A Pavement Licence is a licence which allows for the licence holder to place moveable furniture over a part of the highway adjacent to your premises.
This process has been developed to allow businesses to utilise outside areas in time for the summer months and to support the reopening of businesses following government restrictions. The licence will remain in place for one year and will not extend beyond 30th September 2021.
If you are granted a pavement licence, clear access routes on the highway will need to be maintained taking into account the needs of all users.
