On-street dining is a popular leisure activity that adds to the vibrancy of New Plymouth’s central city and other locations around the district.
The draft update to the On-street Dining Policy and the new On-street Dining Guidelines look to improve the quality and experience of central business areas for both residents and visitors with better design and management of on-street dining areas. This new approach includes flexibility for individuality when designing on-street dining areas.
A highlight of the guidelines is the recognition of visually impaired pedestrians through the implementation of a consistent two metre wide pedestrian zone to enable safe, unimpeded movement along the street.
The main proposed updates to the policy are:
- Emphasising that on-street dining is for eating food (with associated drinks).
- Introducing a new licence duration of two years (maximum) with an annual review.
- Introducing an incentive of a 50 per cent discount on the annual licence fee by providing smokefree on-street dining areas.
