A Pudsey coffee shop has received the green light to continue to have tables and chairs on the pavement, according to a council report published this week.

Bean and Gone, on Lidget Hill, is one of more than 70 cafes across the city – and the only one in West Leeds – to have a temporary pavement licence renewed.

The licenses were brought in as a temporary measure in a bid to boost trade and encourage safe social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic.

A council report approving the renewal said: “In order to support the Covid-19 business recovery phase plans have were put in place to issue Temporary Pavement Licences where appropriate.

“The extended temporary licences will be issued to be in place until no later than 30┬áSeptember 2023 under the provisions of the amended Business & Planning Act. The issue of a temporary licence does not signify that approval would be given to a permanent application at a later date. If required this would be a matter for further application.”
