We are all very excited to see our hospitality industry re-open in the coming weeks. We are here to help you work through your applications for your outdoor dining space as quickly as possible.
You are welcome to apply for a footpath trading permit on a temporary basis for this summer period as we step through the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.
What is a footpath trading permit?
You need a footpath trading permit (public space licence) to place items on the footpath outside your business, including:
- tables, chairs and umbrellas
- an advertising sign
- display goods
- planter boxes, screens or promotional items.
If you already have an existing footpath trading permit, you can apply for an extension of this space too.

Step 3 - Use all information to complete the online form.
Extend your footpath trading area
If you already have a footpath trading permit, you can apply to extend your permit area and use your neighbour's footpath space too.

If you have a footpath trading permit and something has changed at your business, (e.g. your contact details, business has closed, transferred ownership, etc.) please let us know.
Send us a copy of your public liability (certificate of currency).
