Apply for a footpath occupancy permit
When you need this permit
As a business operator, you need a footpath occupancy permit to:
- put an A-frame display sign (sandwich board) on the footpath
- have tables and chairs as part of an outdoor dining area on or near the footpath
- display goods on the footpath
- display windbreakers

This is to ensure that people can access the footpath safely and easily.
