Pavement cafe licensing

Closed 19 Jan 2020

Opened 1 Jan 2020


The council's policy on pavement cafe licensing has not been reviewed for a number of years. The purpose of this consultation is to check that the policy still meets our requirements and takes account of any changes since the last review that might impact on the policy.

One aspect of the policy that is proposed for change is the requirement for all licences to expire annually on 31 May, regardless of when they were granted. It is proposed to amend this so that all licences expire 12 months after they are granted

What Happens Next

After the consultation period has ended, officer will collate the responses and report to Members. The final decision on the new policy will be taken by the Executive.
