As part of the Government's plans to revive the hospitality industry, new laws and processes are being implemented to support outdoor dining.
The Business and Planning Bill 2020 is likely to be introduced later this week (ending 24 July 2020) to streamline the process for premises to apply for a street furniture or table and chair licence, which will be known as a pavement licence. This new legislation is temporary and applies until September 2021. More information about the new processes can be found here.
Q&A session: Thursday 23 July, 2.30 - 3.30pm
As we await the announcement, you can join us for a special Q&A session with the Highways Licensing team from Southwark Council to find out more about how the new legislation applies to premises in Bankside. Register here via Eventbrite using password: Bankside, to join the session this Thursday.
