Sinn Féin Councillor, Cara McShane, has called on Causeway Coast and Glens Council to waive street trading fees for bars and restaurants who are able to extend onto the public pavement.

Cllr Cara McShane, Vice-Chair of Leisure and Development Committee, said:

“Many pubs and restaurants will struggle to meet the social distancing requirements, as restrictions ease from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I have asked Council to work with the trade to help maximise opportunities, where it is safe to do so and within the guidance issued by the Executive.

“Where it is possible to extend onto public pavements and spaces, for instance, I have asked Council to waive street licensing fees. While planning laws, as well as health and safety regulations, will guide decisions, where it is practical – we need to assist in every way possible to encourage and revive the economies of villages and towns throughout our Council area.

“I am delighted that Council will make a decision on waiving of charges, to help alleviate some of the additional burdens faced by the hospitality industry at this time.”
