The Barcelona City Council has so far rejected seven out of ten requests to consolidate hugely expanded bar terraces during the pandemic, published by El Periódico based on data from the Catering Guild.
Similarly, the consistory only analyzed 55% of the 2,786 applications received through March. They asked for the terrace extension provided during Covid to be permanently retained in such a way as to free up space from the road so that social distancing between tables can be maintained.
The slowness of the processing process means that there are only 459 approved prototypes to separate the terraces from traffic instead of the yellow concrete blocks or supports that were installed temporarily and as an exception. Thus, the 1,252 terraces that have yet to be evaluated will retain these elements.
In parallel, the union manages hundreds of resources against abandoned terraces and makes sure that this process is “a disaster and nonsense.”
According to the City Council, 3,618 bar and restaurant extensions were provided at that time, of which 1,483 were by the road and 2,135 were on the sidewalk.
