Tables and chairs should not be placed on the public footway without the consent of the Council. Applications for consent can be obtained from Trish Brown, Road Services, tel: 0131 529 3630.
The approved area to be used for Tables and Chairs will be defined on a drawing with clear dimensions and the business will be responsible for ensuring that customers do not sit outwith that area. The business will also be responsible for ensuring that tables and chairs are not placed on the footway outwith the approved hours.
Any ‘A’ board or other advertising material must be kept within the defined area.
Tables and Chairs will not be permitted beyond the frontage of the premises, nor at locations remote from the frontage.
Businesses are not permitted to damage the footway.
If maintenance works are required in the area occupied by tables and chairs then these must be removed for the duration of the works. No refund of the permit fee will be made.
If there is any breach of the conditions attached to the approval, then the permit may be withdrawn and the tables and chairs may subsequently be removed by the Council.
