Tue, 20/10/2020

Westminster City Council has published an extensive guide that sets out the details of the wide range of support available to the hospitality sector over the winter months. This includes information on:

  • The Council’s support for heaters and umbrellas over the winter and the associated application process.
  • The Council’s call for `winter appropriate’ scheme proposals to support al fresco hospitality for the next six months
  • The process for permitting outside tables and chairs
  • Updated advice as the Covid Alert Level has recently changed

Cllr Rachael Robathan, Leader of Westminster City Council, said: “We want to help our wonderful restaurants, bars, pubs and cafés to provide a safe and enjoyable service over the winter months. Our extensive package of support will help to safeguard jobs and livelihoods within this vital sector of central London’s economy. We’d urge hospitality business owners to see what help’s available and to get in touch so we can get the support to them they need.”
