Pavement licences - Updated Guidance Published Date: 03/08/2022

Updated to reflect the change to the Business and Planning Act Regulations 2022.

The Government has extended the period during which the Fast Track Pavement Licence provisions continue to apply until 30th September 2023 by virtue of The Business and Planning Act 2020 (Pavement Licences) (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2022.

Regulation 5 only applies to a pavement licence for which application is made on or after the date these Regulations come into force. The previous date of 30th September 2022 will continue to apply in relation to any pavement licence applied for before the date these Regulations come into force, though the holder of such a licence may be able to apply for a further licence.

Regulation 6 extends the expiry of sections 1-9 of the 2020 Act generally, also to 30th September 2023.

The guidance has now been updated to reflect the changes referred to above.
