planters on raised kerbed traffic islands on A201 near Blackfriars Bridge

Request ID: FOI-3694-1920
Date published: 02 March 2020

You asked

Thank you for your response to my enquiry, however I have a couple of points of clarification please: 1) If the free standing planter structures have been installed pursuant of S96 does this therefore mean that persons who obtain street cafe licenses pursuant of S115E Highways Act 1980 and who place planters on the highway to delineate their space on the TFL managed network also need a license pursuant of S96 to cover the installation of the planters? 2) Are the planters in question owned and maintained by TFL?

We answered

TfL Ref: 3364-1920 

Thank you for your further email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 13 February 2020 as below asking about the planters installed on raised kerbed traffic islands on A201 near Blackfriars Bridge.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.  I can confirm that we hold the information you require.

For the first question you asked, the person would need to obtain a relevant licence from the highway authority; for the second question, the planters are owned and maintained by TfL.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

Yours sincerely
