Why do I need a licence?

Posted on 21 December 2016

It is our duty to ensure that the highway (including footways and pavements) are safe and accessible to all members of the public. Obstruction of pavements can present a serious problem, particularly to elderly or disabled people, and may be a hazard.

We are required to carry out a consultation before issuing a licence for tables and chairs on the highway, which is why it takes a long time for us to issue a licence and which is why we recommend you apply as early as possible.
