Streamlined ‘Pavement Licence’ expiring soon

Since July 2020, the government has offered a ‘pavement licence’ allowing businesses to pay a small fee to operate outside their premises, as part of plans to assist businesses in reopening. This fee was set at £100 for 3 months, and streamlined the application process

This license is expiring on the 30th of September, upon which businesses will have to apply for the previous standard of a shopfront trading license if they want to continue doing business out the front of their premises.
