North Vancouver restaurants can soon apply for expanded outdoor patio areas

May 28 2020, 9:03 am

The City of North Vancouver Council has unanimously supported the development of an expedited, temporary, and flexible outdoor dining application in anticipation of action from the Province.

Businesses can apply for temporary outdoor seating, and applications can be accepted as early as June 1. Staff are currently finalizing the process.

“People want to support local restaurants without compromising their health,” said Mayor Linda Buchanan.

“Outdoor patios let people make the most of the summer months, while allowing food and beverage businesses to increase their capacity in a way that is safe. Thanks to the hard work of staff, the City of North Vancouver will be able to share guidelines and distribute applications to businesses starting June 1.”
