Installation of a new sidewalk cellar door on a City sidewalk requires a revocable consent.

Revocable Consents are granted by the Department of Transportation, Office of Franchises, Concessions and Consents after extensive review by:

  • City agencies
  • Elected officials
  • Local Community Board
  • City's Public Design Commission

The revocable consent agreement requires the structure to be insured and payment of an annual fee.
