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.

Enough of the greedy vandals who are destroying the unique heritage of London and cities around the world,.. And enough of th e bureaucrats in local and central government who are colluding with them. Thank you Andy Slaughter for your efforts to stop this destruction of the much loved Shepherds Bush Market. I am sure I am not alone in wishing you well for the 7 May election.

It is disgraceful after 100 years that they want to close our beloved Shepherd’s Bush market. The area will never be the same if this happen. I grew up shopping there for my cultural foods. I got to know most of the friendly stall holders. This should never be allowed to happened.

We need the market on our door step! We don’t want to travel miles to find specialist foods. Please stop this outrageous plan to get rid of our market as there is much demand for it from the locals and others who come to visit and source specialist foods.

Shepherd’s Bush Market is an integral part of the culture of Shepherd’s Bush, it is reflective of the diversity of the Shepherd’s Bush community and an important part of the heritage of Shepherd’s Bush.
