Interior Minister outlines details of restaurant seating rules in GreeceThe stores that have a license to use public spaces have the option, in collaboration with the municipality, to double the amount of space they use to set out tables and seating

The content of the legislation on restaurant seating was outlined by Interior Minister Takis Theodorikakos in interviews with Mega and Skai TV on Monday, according to ANA.

Referring to the new rules for catering businesses, which will be submitted to Parliament on Wednesday, he noted that the following will be provided:

1. The stores that have a license to use public spaces have the option, in collaboration with the municipality, to double the amount of space they use to set out tables and seating.
2. If pedestrianization is possible, the municipalities will decide whether it should be done in cooperation with the police, but without additional construction or noise pollution.
3. The extra space will be given without charging additional municipal fees.
4. An essential condition for all the above will be to leave an open corridor for the passage of pedestrians (of at least 1.8m) and not obstruct the access or passage of people with disabilities.
5. In cases where additional space is not available, municipalities will have the option of lowering municipal fees by up to 50 pct.
