Dublin City Council to waive Street Furniture fees until end of 2022

Councillor Heney wishes to advise constituents that Dublin City Council is waiving all street furniture fees until the end of 2022.

The decision has been made as part of the City Council’s efforts to help businesses struggling to recover post Covid-19. A new brochure for businesses “Street Furniture Guidelines” includes details on business use of public spaces, and the Temporary Covid Street Furniture Permit application procedures.

Councillor Heney also wishes to advise that applications remain open for financial support from the Outdoor Dining Enhancement Scheme for tourism and hospitality businesses. https://www.dublincity.ie/business/economic-development-and-enterprise/economic-development/outdoor-seating-accessories-tourism-hospitality-business-scheme. Under the terms of the scheme, businesses can request support to purchase or upgrade equipment to provide additional outdoor seating and, therefore, increase their outdoor dining capacity for summer 2021.
