Eligibility criteria

The maximum depth that the display can protrude over the public footway is 1.05 metres, subject to 2.10 metres clear passageway between the edge of the display and the road (or any intervening pavement furniture such as a bollard or telephone box).

The Council reserves the right, in exceptional circumstances, to allow a greater depth of display where the pavement is very wide, or a smaller depth of display where pedestrian footfall is very high.

All goods or equipment on display under the terms of the licence shall be kept within the area specified.

A minimum vertical clearance of 2.75 metres is required from the surface of the footway to the underside of any projection, this is to allow for the safe passage of pedestrians beneath projections of frontage development - such as canopies, blinds, CCTV equipment. The Council may alter this vertical clearance in exceptional cases.
