Commentary on Sections

Section 7: Renewal of licence

Section 7 sets out the arrangements for renewal of a pavement café licence. The renewals procedure is broadly similar to that for new applications. However, a council will not be obliged to consult the statutory authorities mentioned in Section 4(4).

Section 7(7) permits a council to make certain variations to the licence on renewal.
