In recognition of the unprecedented challenges faced by businesses during the COVID-19 crisis, Causeway Coast & Glens has taken the decision to waive the fee for pavement cafe licences for a 6 month period.

Independent Councillor William McCandless said “I am delighted that my fellow councillors have supported the request for fees for pavement cafe licences to be waived for 6 months. Our High Streets will be one of the key factors in restarting our economy post lockdown and this will be of some assistance to our cafes and restaurants in our towns. We recognise the need to support local businesses as the Borough enters recovery from the COVID-19 crisis. This action supports the reopening of high streets across the Borough whilst ensuring we keep members of the public safe.”

A spokesperson for Coleraine BID also welcomed the move “We welcome any and all efforts to support our fabulous hospitality businesses as they invest in reopening throughout Coleraine.

Since other sectors have opened, it is clear that visitors to Coleraine have missed the outdoor ‘alfresco’ café culture that was available in town pre-lockdown and I am confident from speaking to town users this week that our community will look forward to enjoying the quality cafes and extra seating around town.”
