EPISODE 56: Streets are for seats

The overspill of people on to the streets as a result of our socialising being restricted to public space because cafes, pubs and restaurants are closed has really highlighted the lack of amenities we have in our towns and cities when the commercial providers are taken out of the mix.

Which begs the question, who is public space for (or not as the case may be) and can we enjoy it if we’re not spending money? We talk to Joan O’Connell from Streets Are For People and Green Party Cllr Claire Byrne about the seating situation as well as the anticipation around the PfG votes.
