The tourist center of southern Gran Canaria announces the removal of temporary “express” terraces : The Canary Islands

The extension and installation of terraces on public roads has been one of the main measures taken to help the restaurant and hospitality industry, where sidewalks and parking areas have been allowed to be occupied , but the Government of the Canary Islands has decided to eliminate all restrictions related to the pandemic, the exceptional situation has ceased to produce its effects. This now means that companies that have obtained temporary authorization to use terraces on public roads must start removing them.

The council consistory will communicate with all companies interested in maintaining their terraces and standardizing them according to local ordinances, assisting them if necessary, to be able to carry out the corresponding procedures with the urban planning department, so that their proposals can be assessed and approved by the municipal technical services.

For this purpose, the City Council of San Bartolomé de Tirajana wants to continue supporting a fundamental sector for the economy of the municipality and on which a large number of jobs depend.

Editor’s comment: One of the many good things to come out of the pandemic has been the massive return of outdoor dining to many town centers in Gran Canaria and across the islands.

Eating outside is one of the constant joys of a climate like ours, and it is with a certain hope of community spirit that it inspires that we support town halls to facilitate access to such facilities for the many local businesses. who will clearly benefit from being able to reclaim the streets, from simple arteries designed around traffic to true community hubs.

We’re all for, as George Michael sang so well, Let’s go outside!
