Street Cafe Licensing

Leeds City Council supports and encourages the provision of street cafes in the city centre, as they make a positive contribution by adding vitality, colour, life and interest to the street scene. They can help maximise the use of public spaces, aid the local economy and add to the facilities offered to people who visit, live, and work in Leeds.

If your business serves food and you would like to see if your premises would be eligible for a Street Café Licence, you can download the application form and accompanying guidance documents from the Documents section of this page. Please contact City Centre Management on 0113 247 4471 or at for further information or advice.

Please note that if your business is outside of Leeds City Centre you will need to contact Highways Network Management on 0113 395 2081 or at
