I have seen some photographs on Twitter where all the tables and chairs are out and there is a tiny space for pedestrians to pass through.

In addition, there is quite an issue of the privatisation of what was once public space. We have to get that balance right. That is something from this session that we might recommend as well because we recently extended those licensing and planning regulations. Two years into this, or another summer through, it is time to review it and see how it is working for everybody. That might be another recommendation to make.

Mr. Dolan indicated as well.
