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

    Goldhawk Road is one of the reasons I visit London. If it goes I will take my money elsewhere.

    The fabric shops of Goldhawk Road are legendary within the fashion trade. It is a crying shame when the local council do not realise that they possess the premier division of fabric retailers and are prepared to cast aside this unique asset. I know London needs housing, but not at the expense of the vibrance of the local community. It is because the councillors do not sew, they don,t realise that Goldhawk Road is like Old Trafford in it's importance to dressmakers.
