Temporary pavement licences help restaurants

During the summer, we saw many more tables and chairs outside restaurants and bars than before, plus “café terraces” on suspended parking bays. This is because of a temporary measure until the end of September 2021, intended to help parts of the hospitality industry survive Covid-19.

Today the lockdown ends – and also the cycle lane trial

Today, Wednesday 2 December, is not only the day when the second national lockdown ends, but also the day when the council begins to remove the temporary cycle lanes from Kensington High Street, which were introduced in October. The removal of the many metal “wands” will be done at night time and is expected to take five days.
