12263327066?profile=RESIZE_400xThe Bohem Taproom in Myddleton Road (which sells Czech beer brewed by the Bohem brewery in Tottenham) has used a parking space in the road outside it as an outdoor seating area since the pandemic (see pic taken in August). There was no room for social distancing inside their tiny premises, so they were licensed by the Council to mark off this area with the red and white plastic barriers used elsewhere for extending footways. It is an inviting space - with wood-topped beer barrels as tables, chairs, stools and potted plants around the edge. Renaissance Cafe was also licensed to mark off an existing parking space for tables and chairs.

La Bottega restaurant (which has already had tables set out lengthways down the pavement on occasional warm days this summer) is going to get a licence to do the same, and the licences for all three will be made permanent (the plastic barriers replaced with something more attractive). Other businesses have also asked for them, but the Council said there was no budget for more than three. The soon-to-be re-incarnated Step pub/cafe (now community owned) persuaded them to hold a consultation to enable a fair distribution of parklets, and the results of this have yet to be made public.
