More than 150 bars and restaurants could be set to open out on to pavements across Liverpool in a bid to limit the effects of social distancing measures on capacity.

The government announced new powers to make it easier for restaurants and bars to open or expand on pavements.

Pavement licences, which already exist but normally take weeks to acquire, are set to be fast tracked to help the economy recover from coronavirus.

It comes in conjunction with a raft of other measures to help the hospitality sector, such as the shutting of some roads to cars to help provide the space for bars and restaurants to have seating outside.

In total, 160 premises across the city have already applied to the council for permission for one, though they still have to clear other hurdles before the licences are granted.

If successful, outdoor seating, which is already being increased in the city centre, will become even more common for the remainder of the summer, with the current licences set to be valid until the end of September.

Many of the businesses already have some outdoor seating but here are all the restaurants which have applied for the pavement licences in Liverpool.
