Alfresco Dining Extension

Alfresco Dining Extension - 1 March 2022

The Association is supporting a campaign by Kensington & Chelsea Councillor Johnny Thalassites to encourage alfresco dining in the UK during British Summer Time by extending the rules that were put in place during the pandemic. Under the proposals, hospitality businesses would be able to apply for planning to have outdoor seating from March to late October and the council would help facilitate this in some cases by widening pavements. It is hoped that other councils will follow the example of Kensington & Chelsea. Details of the scheme are available from Director Jim Winship – please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for a copy.
