Why do I need a licence?

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.
