Robert Jenrick – 2021 Comments on Retaining Outdoor Measures for the Hospitality Industry

The comments made by Robert Jenrick, the Secretary of State for Local Government, Housing and Communities on 5 September 2021.

The simple reforms we made during the pandemic to help hospitality businesses, markets and historic visitor attractions make use of outdoor spaces more easily, made a massive impact. They helped thousands of businesses and attraction to prosper, made out town centres livelier and have been enjoyed by millions of us.

As part of our vision to transform high streets into thriving places to work, visit and live, we intend to make as many of these measures permanent fixtures of British life as possible.
