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, new licensing schemes will be introduced for both A-boards and Al-fresco dining areas from January 2018.

The new arrangements will strike a balance betweenthe needs of both pedestrians and businesses in thecity and maintain our status as the most accessible city in Europe.
