When the Fire Station re-opened a year or two ago, they enclosed the majority of the width of the pavement (twice the depth they occupy now), even in the morning 'rush'.
I took photos of pedestrians being forced into the road by the resulting congestion and e-mailed them to Lambeth Council
's highways department, highlighting the congestion and danger they were causing, and asking what rights this business has to occupy the public highway.
The problem was resolved pretty swiftly, although I never got an answer to my direct question.
In addition to speculating on here about what might happen if you write to the council, try contacting them, ideally with photo evidence, and see what actually happens. If nothing does, I'm sure the local councilors would be interested.
