I see Bills is having to apply for retrospective planning permission to become a resteraunt. Can anyone tell me if this includes an application for seating outside or does it already have permission for this?

Bill's has a Licence for tables and chairs outside of the cafe windows but NOT for the 4 tables and chairs outside of the grocery shop, or for the CART and BLACKBOARDS on the pavement.STILL East Sussex County Council Officers continue to let him get away with it. They also turn a blind eye to the 3 TRESTELS TABLES outside of MAYS They do NOT have a Liecence, and refuse to apply for one.

Long Time Lewes Resident (well done for getting that fact in your username!) I don't suppose TDA needs anyone to speak for him/her but I think he wasn't commenting on the trueness or otherwise of the 'facts' but rather, on the staggering small-mindedness of your post.

What people should be looking at is what exactly the ESCC officers got for the 'unofficial' arrangement they used to have with Bill about blocking the pavement.

'Long Time Lewes Resident' - You are of course correct. What was I thinking?
Bill's shouldn't have a CART. Or a TRESTLE TABLE. And a BLACKBOARD!?? MEIN GOTT!! They are NOT PERMITTED. VERBOTEN! They are a SERIOUS HEALTH RISK and as such should be taken to the tidy tip immediately. He must first seek permission to do these things. There are rules for this. Then, and only then, can we deal with the TRESTELS TABLES.
I must leave this place. ASAP. I have let you down, let Lewes down, and myself, that's right, down. I should never have come here - it was all a desperate mistake. I knew the sins of the pedestrianised area would suck me in. Forgive me. I have sinned. I liked the things outside Bill's and I was a fool.
I should go now. Goodbye 'me'! Goodbye 'Long Time Lewes Resident'! Goodbye BLACKBOARD! Goodbye.

I can't think of any good PLANNING reason why tables and chairs shouldn't be allowed outside shops that serve customers who enjoy sitting outside. All that comes to mind is the thought that some folk don't like Bill's.

Sounds a good idea.
Let Bills put there table and chairs in the road and motorists can use his store as a drive through..........or garage.
