Opportunities For All

You may have read in the local newspaper (Kimberley and Eastwood Advertiser) that a business has not been allowed to trade in Kimberley on Toll Bar Square despite agreeing on a rental price for the area.

That business is mine!

I own a Jacket Potato Van and have been trying for several months to get a pitch in Kimberley.

Having applied and been successful with Broxtowe Borough Council the decision was overturned at the last minute by two Conservative Councillors of Kimberley who ultimately should not be able to make this decision (as highlighted at a meeting with the Council)

I was born in Kimberley and still live in the area. I am a single parent with two children aged 3 & 2 and I am working hard to develop and grow my business to provide for my family, and believe others should be allowed the same opportunity.

While this application has been ongoing, I have successfully applied with Broxtowe Borough Council again for a pitch in Stapleford which has not suffered the same rejection and have been trading for approx 7 weeks now, with huge success and approval from local people

I believe it is really important for all types of businesses, particularly new businesses, to be allowed the opportunity to trade in Kimberley which is a thriving town, and to be accountable to the same application process as used for other places under the council's borough

I would be grateful if people would support my petition, for my business to trade, but more importantly to allow the same opportunities for all.

Thank you

Stephanie

    I support this trader, what a good idea to sell a more healthier food to the people of Kimberley than the current Greggs and Chip Shop.

    Good luck Steph. Outrageous how someone can abuse their position of power. Its what you should expect of Tories. She is accountable to us the electorate and we know what to do at the next Broxtowe election

    The sheer arrogance of some councillors is unbelievable, they should support anyone trying to support themselves.
