Where paid for parking bays in Bristol's 'high street' locations have been suspended as a result of Covid and public health measures during the Covid crisis, local businesses should be allowed to use these bays appropriately for tables and chairs and street trading - without charge - until at least September 2021.
Why is this important?
Bristol City Council is charging local businesses a minimum of £7,000 a year to put tables and chairs in parking bays on streets where parking bays have been suspended. At a time when local cafes and restaurants are trying to reopen their businesses and survive, the council should be showing support for our businesses and helping bring life to our streets.
How it will be delivered
We will submit this petition to Bristol's Mayor and Councillors in September 2020.
