Businesses selling food or drink need permission to put furniture (including tables and chairs) on the pavement for your customers where it is part of the public highway.
Until September 2022, you can apply to us for a licence. Previously, Surrey County Council dealt with pavement licensing but this formal process has been suspended to help support businesses.
The minimum length of your licence will be three months. All licences will expire on 30 September 2022.
You will need to supply a number of supporting documents and provide a copy of a current certificate of insurance that covers third party and public liability risks, to a minimum of £10 million.
We publish pavement licence applications so that people can comment or object to your application. They have 5 working days to comment beginning the day after we receive the application electronically.
All licences, including granted licences, are shown on the Public register
