Sefton launches new schemes
to support the Hospitality Sector
has been given additional funding to support the safe reopening
of its high streets and other commercial areas to help support
the hospitality sector. The funding will help support the Sefton
business community, with measures that enable safe trading in
public places. As part of this project, Sefton Council is
looking to extend the pavement areas outside local businesses,
especially where the pavement area is limited. By using the
parking bays, this will allow for social distancing where it
would be difficult to do so otherwise, whilst still having
consideration for all users of the highway, especially those
with disabilities. The 2 main areas where this will be
implemented are Coronation Walk and Union Street Southport, as
we want to focus on our local high streets. The Council has
already implemented the road closure on Court Road from The
Grand Casino to Union Street, helping businesses in this area
increase their trading and to add life and character back into
the local area. The area will also be enhanced with planters
which have been designed, built and installed by the Southport
Flower Show to create an attractive area for customers to use.
Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for
Regeneration and Skills said:- "We understand how all
businesses have been impacted by Covid-19, none more than the
hospitality sector. We have been working with businesses over
the last few weeks to ensure they could open safely while we all
play a part in keeping residents and visitors safe. These new
initiatives will help us achieve this and at the same time help
these independent businesses trade successfully over the next
few weeks. A lot of the infrastructure being used has been
designed and made by The Southport Flower Show again showing how
we can and will support local businesses. We do hope these
initiatives are a great success and we will continue to look at
Lisa Mendi, Local business owner (Bistro Bar Med and Medhito
Cuban Latin lounge on Coronation Walk) said:- "We are so
happy to be able to now offer our customers outside seating.
Thanks to Sefton Council who have made this all possible, we are
absolutely delighted All our lovely customers old and new will
now be able to enjoy their Tapas from Bistro Bar Med sat outside
whilst sipping sangria. Then continuing their evening listening
to the delights of chilled Latin beats and enjoying some
cocktails whilst being outdoors (please check our Facebook page
for other nights.)"
The Council have also adopted a new temporary pavement licence
process, a streamlined consent route to allow businesses to
obtain a licence to place temporary furniture, such as tables
and chairs, outside cafes, bars and restaurants quickly.
If any other businesses are interested in how this project may
be able to assist, please contact the Sefton Tourism Department
