Outdoor Restaurant Sectional, Freestanding Fencing Should Remain inside Local Ordinances
Your restaurant business is booming, and the walls are bursting at the seams. It’s time to expand beyond the four walls — or maybe you want to give your patrons a treat during the warmer months by setting up an outdoor dining area but don’t intend to make it permanent. Either way, Plantation Prestige and Outdoor Restaurant Seating have the permanent solution: flexible, freestanding, sturdy, sectional fencing!
As a restaurant, bistro, café, or other venue operator, you are aware of local ordinances, zoning, and the need for permits. Any boundary changes, especially in public areas, most likely require inspections and permits from the zoning authorities. This can be true for temporary fencing as well, especially if it is in a public space, such as a sidewalk, alley, or parking lot. You want to keep your patrons within a comfortable boundary and safe from hazards, and your municipality wants to keep its citizens safe from obstructions. This may also pertain to other outdoor restaurant furniture, such as benches, heaters, and trash receptacles.
There are many possible considerations that vary from place to place, and that can change without notice. Zoning ordinances take into account the dimensions and types of barriers; the special needs of people with impairments; the location of barriers and fencing relative to buildings and curbs; size of openings, plants, umbrellas, etc.; method of attachment; and a myriad of other considerations you may not have thought of.
Please check with your local authorities before installing commercial outdoor restaurant fencing or furniture, even in a temporary situation.
