Pavement Café Licences
A pavement café licence allows you to put things such as chairs, tables and signs on the public highway outside your venue.
Depending on whereabouts in the country you are – all local authorities approach this issue differently - the licence may be all you need to trade legally as long as you have the correct planning application in place for your premises.
However, some local authorities require a separate planning application for the tables, chairs and signage to be made before they will grant you a licence.
