The government is allowing shops and restaurants to expand their services on to terraces free of charge through the month of September to help boost summer trade.

As the health crisis drags on into its second summer, the government, the National Council and Monaco City Hall had offered certain shops and restaurants the ability to expand operations onto the public roadway from January 2021. That has now been extended to include the month of September.

City Hall is granting a 50% discount on the Public Road Occupation (OVP) tariff, and the State, through the Commission for Support to Economic Recovery (C.A.R.E.), will cover the remaining 50% during this period.

The establishments do not need to do anything to receive this benefit and Municipal Services is due to keep them abreast of all information.

The measure was created jointly by City Hall and the government to provide additional support to local businesses who are still struggling from fallout due to the pandemic and the continued economic strife that it entails.

Normally, the right of public usage on roadways is only obtained through special permission and a fee must be paid by the applicant.
