The Temporary Town Centre Streetspace Fund (TTCSF) has been established to enable businesses in Barnet to restore their trading capacity during the pandemic. The first round of TTCSF has supported 24 businesses to expand into outdoor street space for trading purposes. The Temporary Street Space fund has re-opened for applications to be made by businesses to be put on a reserve list for any re-allocated parklets.
To support the hospitality sector to reopen safely and trade outdoors during COVID-19, the government has introduced a new street trading licence for premises that sell food and/or drink to the general public. This offers a streamlined and cheaper route for businesses such as cafes, restaurants and bars to secure a licence to place furniture on the highway.
