Fresh boost for Swansea hospitality trade as council suspends fees for pavement café licences

Published

Swansea Council say they’ve served up another boost to the hospitality industry as they will continue to provide licences for outdoor dining areas free of charge across the whole of Swansea until December 31.

The move – which follows the suspension of fees for Pavement Café Licences over the past nine months – will help businesses as they battle back from lockdown. It will help bring added life and vibrancy to city centre streets.

It has been welcomed by Swansea BID (Business Improvement District) who are working with members across the city centre to help them secure and maintain licenses for offering services on paved areas, footways and carriageways next to their premises.

The move forms part of a wider multi-million pound recovery fund to help Swansea businesses and communities recover from the pandemic. Further details are due to be announced by the council in the coming days

Council leader Rob Stewart said: “By removing these costs for the rest of 2021 we can save businesses many thousands of pounds and give them a better chance of thriving in our post-lockdown city.

“The move will help keep people in work and give residents more safe options for eating and drinking away from their homes.”
