From Tuesday 22 September additional restrictions will be implemented across Lancashire, including Preston.

These restrictions include new rules which will directly impact local businesses.

This means that:

  • Hospitality for food and drink must operate table service only
  • Leisure and entertainment venues must close between 10pm and 5am

We will be updating pages in greater detail once we have received further information from government.

If you are concerned about the implementation of COVID secure measures in a business, workplace or other public building please report this by using our Coronavirus report form.

If you manage a restaurant, pub, cafe and want to talk to us about pavement licensing or any other specific request within our remit, relating to safely re-opening, please email us: Please note: this is not just for city centre businesses.
