Al Fresco Licence

Why licences are needed?
Obstructions on the highway particularly cause difficulties for visually impaired people, those with mobility issues, wheelchair users and parents and carers with pushchairs.
Following an extensive consultation and the feedback generated from it, licensing schemes were introduced for both A-boards and Al-fresco dining areas. The arrangements strike a balance between the needs of both pedestrians and businesses in the city and maintain our status as the most accessible city in Europe.
