The Toulouse town hall extended by six months, until the end of March 2022, the extensions of terraces of bars and restaurants authorized since the health crisis.
The Covid terraces, that is to say the extensions of terraces which have been authorized by the Toulouse city hall to compensate for the drop in activity linked to the epidemic, will be extended until the end of March 2022. The measure, which has been renewed several times since the start of the Covid crisis, was due to end on September 30. It also concerns the evening closure of eight streets in the Pink City.
The town hall evokes “a decision taken in consultation with the inhabitants and representatives of catering professionals” whose aim is to help these professionals who have been “particularly affected by the health crisis”. “These six additional months will make it possible to refine the assessment which will be carried out at its end. The extension of the extensions of the Covid terraces will be billed at the current rate, ie 30% in addition to the rate for conventional terraces.”
The town hall specifies that the establishments have not requested authorization to renew. And that outdoor heating systems will not be allowed.
This extension of the terraces, which was regularly contested by associations representing the disabled, was acquired. On September 15, during his back-to-school press briefing, Jean-Luc Moudenc, the mayor, said he was in favor, subject to two conditions which therefore seem to have been met. “I want to see that there are no complaints for nuisance and that these terraces do not prevent the public from moving,” said the chief magistrate.
