You are required to apply for a pavement licence if you wish to place removable furniture (tables, counters, seating, umbrellas, barriers etc.) on the public highway.

The Levelling Up and Regeneration Act 2023 has made changes to the Pavement Licensing function from March 31, 2024.

This includes changes to the consultation and determination periods (the process will now take 28 days from submission to decision), the introduction of a fee cap and new enforcement powers for Local Authorities.

We are currently in the process of updating our forms and procedures to reflect these changes.

Please note we can only consider applications for an area that is part of the maintained highway within the Charnwood Borough area, approval isn’t automatic, and no furniture can be placed on the highway until a licence has been issued.
