Licensing of Pavement Cafés Act (Northern Ireland) 2014

Section 13: Change in persons carrying on business

Section 13 makes clear that a pavement café licence may not be transferred from one person to another. However, where a licence refers to a business partnership and a partner dies or withdraws from the business, the licence may remain in force, with any remaining person(s) named in the licence treated as the licence holder. If there is an addition to the partnership the new partner will be given the authority to place furniture on the area (similar to employees), but will not be deemed a licence holder of the current licence.
