Patio Update from the City of London

The City of London has extended temporary permissions allowing expanded outdoor patios to stay operational until December 31, 2021. This extension is designed to help you continue safely providing goods and services in the months ahead (once the current lockdown measures are no longer in place) with the same administrative requirements that were in place in 2020.

Downtown London Marketplace

E-commerce has become more and more popular in recent years, and with the unfortunate lockdown, it is more important than ever. Downtown London has built an online marketplace where downtown businesses can list their products (or gift cards!) free of charge. There is absolutely no cost to businesses to participate.

With being under a stay-at-home order, now is a great time to jump on board with the Marketplace.
