Should pubs be allowed to trade on the footpath?

My last post concerned the views of Danish architect Jan Gehl on creating street level, active urban spaces for people.

On the same theme, a recent article in the Melbourne Age highlights the conflict between the Grace Darling Hotel in Smith Street, Collingwood and the City of Yarra council.

Permanent tables and chairs, which had existed since 1993, were removed last year and replaced with park benches, bicycle hoops and mature trees to provide more public meeting spaces.

Mayor Allison Clarke said that the Council had no intention of phasing out outdoor trading on side streets, but that it was important to have some places where you can just sit and not have to pay.
