Tables and chairs

During the COVID-19 pandemic can I put tables and chairs outside?

Will I be able to get a temporary permission to help with COVID-19 Restrictions?


As of 22 July 2020, The Business and Planning Act 2020 gained Royal Assent and has come into immediate effect. 

This Act offers a opportunity for any premises selling food and/or drink to apply to use Highway land on a temporary basis to assist with being able to socially distance customers wishing to consume the purchased food or drink.
