Save Shepherds Bush Market

The shopkeepers and small traders at Shepherds Bush Market need your help.

The 100 year-old market, and the neighbouring housing plots, first came under threat when the then-Conservative council in Hammersmith & Fulham authorised a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) on the businesses and traders that refused to sell up to a property developer called Orion. This means that they will lose their stalls even if they don't want to go.

Earlier this year they thought they had been saved as an independent Planning Inspectorate found in their favour, deciding that the market should be saved.

Those hopes have seemingly been squashed by the Tory Planning Minister Brandon Lewis MP who overruled the Inspector, effectively green-lighting the demolition of the market.

I hoped we had seen an end to the bias in favour of developers and away from residents and small business when the Tories lost control of the Council in May but now we have the Government stepping in to tip the scales. The traders have been badly let down by this out of touch government.

Do you agree?

If so, you can join the campaign to save the market by signing my petition which urges the planning minister to listen to locals, protect small business and to U-turn on his damaging decision.

I Think any improvements made to the market should be agreed with the stallholders and shopkeepers if they don’t agree with the changes then it should not happen , I have known the market since 1969 , I love the old parts of London which are sadly disappearing , this is why I don’t wont to see MORE change .

I am opposed to the removal of shepherds bush market. Nothing good will come of this proposal. The plan is a crime against ordinary people. It is a crime against the history and culture of the local area. Central London is being turned into a no go zone for people on low incomes. This has to stop. In the end it will do none of us any good..

I have loved this market since I was a child. Markets are filled with the kind of nostalgia that shopping malls cannot possibly have. We need markets to maintain the community spirit and an amount of ‘quaintness’ that modern life has torn away. Please don’take all of that away

Shepherds Bush Market is part of the fabric of Shepherds Bush. The market is part of the character of the area. Leave it alone.

Please keep our market, given the increased cost of daily living in our borough it is essential that residents can shop at reasonable prices and it’s a London landmark- it’s not portobello, but has so much more to offer-can’t really do a welly food shop in North end road market. Don’t let the same fate befall shepherd’s bush market.
