2. OUTSIDE PAVEMENT AREAS
Whether licensed in the layout plan of the Premises Licence, or by way of Occasional Licences or if not licensed, external areas with tables and chairs for customers on the public highway within the City of Glasgow, require annual consent from the Roads Department. This consent, known as Section 59 Consent, lasts from 01 April to 31 March each year.
IMPORTANT Roads Dept s59 Consent for tables and chairs on the pavement expired 31 March.

9. I would remind you also that each Personal Licence Holder working in the premises should also have their Personal Licence kept on site. Please remember Personal Licence Holders must complete Refresher Training within 5 years of the date of issue of their Personal Licence and notify Board within a further 3 months of having done so. FOR THIS REASON I WILL INSPECT EACH PERSONAL LICENCE HELD BY YOUR STAFF SO PLEASE ENSURE THESE ARE ON THE PREMISES FOR MY INSPECTION
