Licensing of Pavement Cafés Act (Northern Ireland) 2014

Section 18: Compulsory variation of area covered by licence

Section 18 allows a council to vary the area covered by a pavement café licence. This is regarded as an alternative to revocation where part of the area has become (or is going to become) unsuitable for use as a pavement café or continued use for this purpose is likely to result in undue interference or inconvenience to persons or vehicles in the vicinity, or in disorder. Variation of the area will be subject to the limits imposed by Section 8(9). If it makes a variation, the council may also vary existing licence conditions under Section 6(3) or specify new conditions.
