Parklets, a growing urban trend, address challenges in areas where narrow or congested pavements limit outdoor seating or where there is a need to expand seating and public space. There is a growing demand for more spaces for people to dwell in our city which complements the introduction of green infrastructure, such as parklets, which provide a much-needed resting space from the hustle and bustle of the urban environment supporting our member businesses as well as benefitting the local community and visitors. The parklets were implemented following £50,000 in funding from Exeter City Council through the Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund, an initiative dedicated to improving public spaces and building local pride in place. The project aligns with key post-pandemic themes, including support for the local food and drink scene, the city's Net Zero Carbon goals and initiatives promoting health, wellbeing, and public space.
