Grays of Shropshire started this petition to Telford and Wrekin Council

Ironbridge has been hard hit by firstly flooding and now Covid 19

Telford and Wrekin Council enabled us to apply for pavement licences to allow for tables and chairs to be used outside, allowing us to continue to open whilst adhering to social distancing.

Traders invested their time and money in gaining licences and purchasing outdoor furniture.

Then without warning they withdrew the ability for us to operate using the pavement licence - despite weather still being good enough and the investment made, there was no consultation with us prior to doing this.

Cafes and restaurants across Europe operate using outside space all year round, why is this not good enough for the Gorge?

Telford and Wrekin Council - don’t finish off our business! Support us and keep us alive! Allow us to continue to use the pavement and reverse your damaging decision now!
