The Councilor for Economic Development, José Antonio López Olmedo, has drafted a Decree that makes it possible to expand the number of tables on the terraces. Each table unit will be composed of a table and four chairs, which will occupy an area of ??four square meters, so that a table and its four chairs can be installed every eight square meters. The City Council will allow in squares, parks, public gardens and pedestrian streets to expand the surface area of ??tables, as long as the free widths of the pedestrian crossing are guaranteed and with a maximum increase of 50 percent of the surface prior to the crisis of the Covid-19.
The free passages for pedestrian circulation next to the terraces will be expanded and will have a minimum width of 2.50 meters for one direction of pedestrian circulation and 5.00 meters for two-way, so that some terraces will have to be removed. In streets with traffic, the terrace may be installed on sidewalks or widening of them, as long as the free widths of pedestrian passage are guaranteed, on sidewalks with a minimum width of 4.50 meters for a direction of pedestrian circulation and 7 .00 meters for double direction.
