Background Information: A pavement licence allows businesses to place removable furniture on certain highways (pavements) next to their business premises. Pavement licences are a temporary process introduced in response to the coronavirus outbreak. The process is in place until 30 September 2021. It was introduced under the Business and Planning Act 2020. When the new licence was brought in Cambridge City Council chose to charge no fee until March 2021, the Act allows a fee of up to £100 to be payable at application. This meeting is to consider if a charge should be brought in to cover administration and what this cost should be.
