This answer was rated:

If a cafe is refused initially then appeals ' to planning' 're putting tables outside of their premises for eating purposes but is still refused permission. Who is held responsible the owner of the premises or the lease holder?

Not sure if relevant but our previous lease holders hadn't fixed seating. The new tenants have placed sleepers around the seating to create privacy?

Concerned if member of the public had an accident who would be responsible. Part of paving frontage belongs to us but the remaining area to the road is the local authorities


Thank you for your query. It is a difficult question to answer without having sight of your lease, however, I am assuming that if you have full.control of area and have a full repair and maintenance lease, you the leaseholder responsible for the seating.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
