  • Weatherproofing and Outdoor Dining Infrastructure Scheme

    The Local Authority Weatherproofing & Outdoor Dining Infrastructure Scheme is a Capital Grants scheme, that has been developed through collaboration with Local Authorities, to upgrade and enhance streets and public spaces and implement weather-proofing solutions which will facilitate year-round outdoor dining in key tourism centres whilst meeting the needs of all citizens.

    Local Authorities are invited to identify suitable locations and propose capital projects that are flexible, innovative and facilitate year-round use for outdoor dining. Potential projects should respond to the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and support the recovery of the tourism and hospitality sector as well as being future-proofed, from a health and safety perspective, and respect the needs and rights of all users of our streets and public spaces.
