3. Temporary street cafe licences introduced

Devon County Council have introduced temporary 'street cafe' licences to help hospitality businesses re-open in the coming weeks. 

Tables and chairs on paved or pedestrianised areas that are public highway are among the ways cafes and pubs can help customers to maintain social distancing guidelines.

There's usually a 12 week formal process before a licence is granted, but these new temporary licences will speed up the process by enabling businesses to provide outdoor seating while the application is being considered.
