The maximum depth that a display can protrude over the public footway is 1.05 metres (3 feet 6 inches). This only applies if there is a 2.10 metre (7 feet) clear passageway between the edge of the display and the road (or any 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.
- A smaller depth of display in busy areas.
It is important that all goods or equipment on display under the terms of the licence are kept within the area specified.
Pedestrians must be allowed a safe passage beneath projections from frontage development. Examples of these include:
- CCTV Equipment
To ensure this, you must leave a minimum vertical clearance of 2.75 metres from the surface of the footway to the underside of any projection. The Council may alter this vertical clearance in exceptional cases. If, in the future pavement furniture is added by the Council, and the display area of the licence is affected, we will review or remove the licence.
