A pavement licence costs £100.

Apply for a new licence or renew an existing issued licence

The renewal option is available to premises who have an existing issued licence, and would like to renew on the exact terms of their pavement licence.

If you have had a licence previously that has expired, need to make changes to your application or have not had a pavement licence then you must submit a new application.

Applications will be decided within 14 days of receipt if they meet the requirements.

Pavement licences can be granted for a minimum of 3 months but may not extend beyond September 2021.
