Pavement Licences

A new temporary fast-track process for businesses to obtain permission, in the form of a “pavement licence”, has been introduced.
19 April 2021

These are available from Newham Council for the placement of furniture such as tables and chairs on the pavement outside their premises that will enable applicants to maximise their capacity whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines.

The new temporary measure places a cap on the application fee of £100 for businesses, and introduces a new 14-day determination period, ensuring that businesses can obtain licences in a timely and cost-effective manner aiding their financial recovery. This fee is not refundable, should the licence be issued or not.
