Licences and permits directory - Pavement licence for tables, chairs and other furniture

You will need a licence from us to place street furniture, such as tables and chairs, on a public pavement.

We have taken temporary responsibility from Kent County Council (KCC) for issuing these permits. A licence will run for a minimum of three months up to 30 September 2021.

As part of the application, you are required to complete and display a notice advertising your application. You should display the notice on your premises from the day you submit your application and for the next seven days.

You can put tables and chairs on your own land and on someone else’s land without a licence but you will need permission from the landowner.

Making an application

Before you apply, please view the Government guidance on pavement licences.

Your application should comply with the pavement licence conditions.

The licence application fee is £100.

You will need to upload your plans with your application.
