Economic Recovery Plan: Free Occupation of the Public Highway for Terraces of Shops and Restaurants

Economic Recovery Plan: Free Occupation of the Public Highway for Terraces of Shops and Restaurants

Aware of the persistent difficulties experienced by the Principality’s economic players and taking the international health context and the length of the crisis into account, the Prince’s Government, in consultation with the National Council and Monaco City Hall, has decided to grant free Occupation of the Public Highway (OVP) for the terraces of restaurants and shops concerned, for the period of January to September 2021 inclusive.

In practical terms, the City Hall will grant a 50% discount on the OVP, and the State, through the Economic Recovery Support Commission (CARE), will cover the remaining 50%. Establishments will benefit from this aid without the need for action on their part and will be kept informed by the Municipal Departments.

Through this new measure, the Prince’s Government and Monaco City Hall are increasing the support provided to local economic players and the joint efforts made in the context of the economic recovery.
