Any representations should be emailed to This needs to be before the representations deadline date shown.

Please note these temporary measures are brought in under the Business and Planning Act 2020. They are intended to support businesses and the economy to recover from the severe disruption caused by Covid-19. This includes helping businesses adjust to new ways of working. It also assists in the challenging process of getting the economy moving again. The new fast track temporary Pavement Licence procedure is a streamlined process. It is designed to support the hospitality industry to recover lost capacity by permitting additional use of the highway. The intention behind the legislation is to assist businesses in the most challenging operating environment in living memory.

The Local Authority intends to issue Pavement Licences to comply with the Act. This is unless there are good reasons not to. For example:

  • evidence or concerns relating to obstruction
  • insufficient room for disabled access
  • safety
  • crime
  • disorder or nuisance

These key areas are covered in the Pavement Licence mandatory, national and local conditions. Representations should not include anything already included in the conditions. Representations can include suggested additional conditions. This is dependent on the individual premises, if reasonable and proportionate.
