I agree with you that street furniture is getting out of hand in some areas of the city.

They seem to have “colonised” whole streets at this stage which is making it hard for pedestrians in the narrower streets which have been re-paved recently and are now virtually impassable at peak times.
Surely any licences for outdoor seating must take the width of the lanes / streets into consideration.
I would have thought that 1 table width around the perimeter or front of cafe or restaurant is sufficient as in the Bodega whilst the Newport has a Parisian style annexation of Rory Gallagher place.Tha slalom like nature of walking down French Church Street now is a pity.On a related note it might be a good idea to start pedestrianise Academy Street,Devonshire street and the streets off Emmett Place and the rear of the Savoy which would give that area just off Patrick Street a boost and take pressure off the Hugenot quarter.
