Tables and Chairs permit application and conditions - Section 59

Section 59 of the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984 prohibits the placement of anything on the public road that could constitute an obstruction, unless the written consent of the Roads Authority is given.

Should you wish a permit to place tables and chairs on the public road/footway outside your business, please complete the below application form and, attaching a detailed and numbered plan of your proposals, send to roadworks@westlothian.gov.uk

Permits run for a maximum period of 12 months and will be subject to our standard conditions for tables and chairs, which are contained within the application form. The council may apply further conditions as deemed appropriate.

There is currently no charge for Section 59 permits.
