Make sure our high streets are accessible
Pavement furniture - such as tables and chairs - can block pavements and be hazardous for people with sight loss.
Cafe, restaurant and pub owners will soon be applying for pavement licenses to increase the number of people they can serve outside, therefore increasing the amount of pavement furniture near their premises.
The period that these rapid licenses can be awarded has been extended, and we are concerned that without reasonable consultation from local people on the impact that pavement furniture has on them, there will be a big increase in street clutter on already-crowded pavements.
Will you sign the petition and ask your council to make sure your local high street is accessible for everyone this summer?
