Thank you to those of our pubs, bars, restaurants and café members who have provided BID Manager Catherine Price with details of the new or additional outdoor space you would like to utilise from 4th July to help manage social distancing and re-opening safely.
She has shared this with the Council’s licensing team who are managing the process with the support of the Council’s highways team and the police.
The Council’s licensing team is in the process of updating, revising and finalising their pavement café license application process following the release of the government’s draft guidance and legislation yesterday, and with a view to being flexible and supportive of businesses utilising outdoor space.
They are aiming to be in a position to invite applications from Monday next week, (subject to government confirmation of the guidance and legislation) and Catherine will keep you updated with the process and send you information as soon as she has it.
In the meantime, if you could let firstname.lastname@example.org know your outdoor space requirements if you haven’t already (space, furniture, days, times), to assist with the process.
