Café Culture

In order to ensure that pavement cafes and other ‘sitting out’ areas make a positive contribution to our city; BCCM has produced a ‘Café Culture’ Memorandum of Understanding which sets out guidelines for the business owner to ensure the ‘sitting out area’ makes a positive contribution to the street scene whilst considering the needs of all other users of the city centre.
