Petition to save Northcote Road shops and restaurants

Postby gkc » Mon May 25, 2020 11:22 am

A petition has been launched  shttp://chng.it/6ctBkNnMN6  asking Northcote Road landlords to give rent concessions to help local shops and restaurants survive the current crisis.  This has been prompted by news that White Stuff , which has been on the road for over 20 years, is due to close as it has not been able to agree a reduced rent with its landlord.  Retail was already struggling, but now shops and restaurants have been closed for months and once they re-open their takings will be dramatically reduced due to social distancing measures. Without support and flexibility from landlords many of our much-loved local businesses could disappear, resulting in yet more empty shops and changing the character of Northcote Road forever. 
 Please sign the petition  shttp://chng.it/6ctBkNnMN6  (it’s very quick and easy to do) and share it as widely as you can - many people travel from outside the area to Northcote Road for the shops and resaturants.  You could also consider writing to the Northcote Ward councillors and the local MP:
Councillor Louise Calland: cllr.l.calland@wandsworth.gov.uk Councillor Peter Dawson: Cllr.P.Dawson@wandsworth.gov.uk Councillor Aled Richards-Jones: cllr.a.richards-jones@wandsworth.gov.uk MP Marsha de Cordova: marsha.decordova.mp@parliament.uk
