Save our shops and heritage from demolition
by signing our petition
Goldhawk Road shopkeepers in Shepherds Bush need your help tosave their businesses from demolition by the local council.
A row of Victorian shops, longestablished businesses are in jeopardy and you can help by signing our petition.
The local community are rallying behind our shopkeepers to stop the destruction of their thriving businesses.
The councilproposes to regenerate the Shepherds Bush Market and the library. However, the public consultationfailed to disclose thattwelveshops,30-52 Goldhawk Road,will be demolished tomake wayfor a 7 storey 250 unit private block of flats.
As soon as the information was published the local residents, market traders and shopkeepers immediately voiced their concerns. But instead ofthe council engaging with the local community, as they ought to have done with the public consultation, they went ahead and approved the plan forcing anyfurther objections to be made via the courts. Consequently the shopkeepers launched a strong legal challenge against the council’s plan and were awarded a Judicial Reviewby the Courts of Justice for later this year.
The Goldhawk Road shops and Shepherds Bush Market is the glue that holds our unique and diverse community together. They are one of the last bastions of working class heritage remaining inLondon.
Your signature of support is very much appreciated and valued.
Thank you and best wishes

Please save the shops! Don't chase them out to the outskirts of London, they are part of what makes London great - fashion is a huge industry and feeding the creativity, whether for students or others, is crucial for why a lot of us flock to London. The Goldhawk road shops are a treasure.
It will br a crime to destroy this slice of history. Once gone, you cant replace it. Not everything is about money.
Don't destroy the shops!
