Temporary pavement licences

Temporary pavement licence

The Business and Planning Act 2020 has introduced new temporary pavement licences which will allow businesses to place furniture such as tables and chairs on the public highway.

Please read Wyre Council's policy on pavement licences, which includes the standard conditions that will be applied to all pavement licences in the borough and a template for the site notice.

The fee for a new Wyre pavement licence is £100, and licences will be issued for four months.

Applications must be submitted electronically and applicants may use this online form or alternatively download an application form to complete and email it with the required documents to

Once submitted applicants must advertise the application by displaying the site notice at the premises for seven days.

We would remind businesses that until a pavement licence has been granted, furniture such as tables and chairs should not be placed on the public highway so as to cause an obstruction as that would be unlawful under the Highways Act 1980.
