Oxford City Council should waive street cafe licensing fee

Green Councillors are calling for Oxford City Council to waive the £750 fee for street cafe licensing to both help with social distancing and to support small businesses in recovering post-COVID. 

Says Green Councillor Dick Wolff, "This fee is already a barrier for many small businesses wishing to support a street cafe culture. Now is the time to waive the fee - a fairly modest short term loss to Council income that will enormously help small cafes and restaurant who have been hit particularly hard by COVID-19.

    Street Cafes are inherently safer than indoor ones with Covid still around: there should not be a price on keeping people healthy.
    The hospitality sector is really going to struggle post-Covid, and needs all the help it can get.
