Businesses in Oxton are calling for an extension to outdoor seating spaces, ahead of the reopening of outdoor hospitality on April 12th. They have my full support.
Speaking to the Wirral Globe, I said:
“Our exciting and innovative plans for regeneration must take into consideration all parts of the town and an area that depends on hospitality and specialist retail – like Oxton – must be included in the council’s thinking.
For this reason I am supporting the call by this group of businesses to request urgent action to open up the pavements to outside service as this will be vital in saving the businesses, saving an area that can benefit from improved hospitality access and of course saving jobs in the area and making it attractive to residents and visitors alike.”
