  8. 7.01

    • Alcohol in licensed pavement areas (accessible) - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

    • (deadline 11 July 2024)

    • The Business and Planning Act 2020 (2020 Act) sought to support businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
      This enabled premises licence holders with on-sales only Licences to make off-sales without any need to amend their licence.
      At the same time, the 2020 Act also streamlined the process for obtaining a pavement licence, which meant that businesses with an on-sales could automatically sell alcohol for consumption in a licenced pavement area.
      The Levelling Up and Regeneration Act 2023 has made permanent the provisions set out in the 2020 Act relating to pavement licensing, but the future of the off-sales element has not yet been decided and the provision is due to lapse in March 2025.
      If left to simply lapse, those businesses with on-sales only licences that have made use of the easement and wish to continue to make off-sales would require a licence variation. The process for obtaining a variation to a licence can be costly and time consuming.
      The Government has identified 3 new options to consult on that would enable premises to more easily sell alcohol for consumption in a licensed pavement area, whilst ensuring that licensing authorities and local residents continue to have a say about what happens in their area.
      Does the Committee wish to take part in this consultation?
      If so, we can consider the questionnaire and the 3 options in full at a future meeting and agree the Town Council’s response.
