Greenwich Council is consulting on its controversial pavement charges to the borough's businesses - but there are just days left to respond.

Dubbed the 'pavement tax' by critics, the policy sees businesses paying licences to place tables and chairs or shop-front displays on the street.

Last year, council leader Councillor Chris Roberts apologised over the way the weekly charge - which costs costs £7 per square metre - was introduced.

It sparked a 2,000 signature petition and concern that small businesses would be put under increased financial pressure at a time of economic woe.

A consultation on the way this policy is implemented is now underway and ends on March 24.
