Bolton council will continue to close some streets to traffic as visitors return to venues in the town centre.
Churchgate had been closed over weekends to allow people to sit outside at bars, restaurants and cafes but will now be reopened to cars.
However, Nelson Square will remain closed to traffic from Thursday-Sunday each week to allow more outdoor space.
Venues across the town have applied for pavement licences to begin serving customers as the lockdown rules are eased.
Punters were able to get back into bars, restaurants and pubs from Monday in line with the latest government guidelines.
Explaining plans for the town centre going forward, a council spokesperson said: “Following on from the announcement of the pavement café licences back in July last year we originally closed Churchgate Friday – Sunday to support the hospitality sectors in this part of the town centre.
“We’ve monitored the feedback and usage of pavements during that time and have revised the plans. Individual bars and venues will be able to use the section of pavement outside their premises but Churchgate will remain open for traffic.
“Elsewhere it’s planned that Nelson Square will be closed to traffic Thursday to Sundays when we move into Step 3 to allow outdoor space to be used, and we have had applications from other venues around the borough.”
People are currently allowed to go to venues if they have outdoor seating, visit hairdressers and shop in a number of non-essential stores.
In May, the government is expected to further ease rules on meeting with family and friends indoors and outside.
