To place tables, chairs or other temporary furniture on the pavement in England and Wales you require permission from your Local Authority.
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 a duration of 5 working days, starting on the first working day following receipt of the application. Consultation will also take place with other interested parties e.g. Responsible Authorities. If we receive representations these will be taken into consideration in determining your application.
Condition relating to clear routes of access:
It is a condition that clear routes of access along the highway must be maintained, taking into account the needs of disabled people, and the recommended minimum footway widths and distances required for access by mobility impaired and visually impaired people as set out in Section 3.1 of Inclusive Mobility.
There is a fee (per table) of £33 up to a fee of £100 for more than 3 tables. A maximum of 4 chairs can be placed at each table.
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 online application and send supporting documents to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will also need to pay the fee.
