To place tables, chairs or other temporary furniture on the pavement in England and Wales you require permission from your Local Authority.
In addition to the application form you need to provide the following:
Ipswich Borough Council has adopted standard conditions which you can download. These conditions may be subject to alteration or addition, if necessary, for individual applications.
Your application must be advertised at the location for the duration of 28 days. Consultation will also take place with other interested parties e.g. Responsible Authorities. If we received representations the application will be referred to the Licensing Sub-Committee.
There is a fee (per table) which is renewable yearly.
No. This means that you are not able to act as though your application is granted if you have not heard from the local authority by the end of the target completion period of 42 calendar days.
You will need to complete an application form online, pay the fee and send the relevant information/evidence as above to the licensing team. The information can be scanned and emailed to us.
