The Business and Planning Bill, which is going through parliament, will set up a temporary fast-track process allowing businesses to get a Pavement Licence from us to have tables and chairs on the pavement outside their premises.

This Bill is not yet law, but check our Pavement Licence page to find out how to get ready to apply for this.

Licences and Permits

Guildford Borough Council is the responsible licensing authority across the borough.
