Pavement licence

How does this licence interact with other regulatory processes, such as alcohol licensing?

It is important to note the grant of a pavement licence only permits the placing of furniture on the highway. Other regulatory frameworks still apply such as the need for alcohol licences and the need to comply with registration requirements for food businesses.

If the applicant has a licence to serve alcohol on premises, temporary amendments to the Licensing Act 2003 will allow them to sell alcohol for consumption off the premises without needing to apply for a variation of their licence.

Planning permission is not required for this licence. Once a licence is granted, or deemed to be granted, the applicant will also benefit from deemed planning permission to use the land for anything done pursuant to the licence while the licence is valid.

The licence will expire on the 30 September 2021. However, if there is a temporary road closure in place the licence will expire at the same time as this order, providing it does not exceed 30 September 2021.
