Add your name to our petition to Save Chinatown from demolition. Developer Rosewheel Ltd is taking action to evict long-established businesses in the eastern part of London Chinatown to make way for a shopping mall. After the redevlopment, rents could go up by 500% making it impossible for the current tenants to return. This would open the floodgates for all other rents in London Chinatown to rise, threatening to force out all remaining Chinese shops.
Min Quan is collecting signatures of people who object to the redevelopment. We will then present the petition to Westminster Council and the Greater London Authority.
By signing this online petition, you confirm your objection to any planning application for redevelopment of Sandringham Newport Court, and you call upon Westminster Council to preserve the character and social stability of the Chinatown community.
Min Quan is a non-profit charitable organisation that provides support, education and resources to the UK Chinese community. In particular Min Quan has expertise in race relations and helping victims of racism. Min Quan is a branch of The Monitoring Group.
