To place tables, chairs or other temporary furniture on the pavement you may require approval from the highways authority.
The highways authority may specify operating conditions and charge a licence fee.
Although consents must not be unreasonably withheld, there are a number of issues that may be considered prior to the grant of a pavement licence:
- frontage and walkway consent may also have to be obtained first;
- public notice of the application may need to be given detailing the proposal and deadline for representations;
- all representations received may be considered
- any other relevant authorities may be consulted.
Cambridgeshire County Council is the highways authority for the East Cambridgeshire district.
There are no trade associations associated with a pavement licence.
