Simon Simon started this petition to Birmingham City Council and

Thank you for taking the time to read this, as some of you may be aware the Birmingham city council has proposed to go ahead with renovating the market area to a urban village using Australian firm Lendlease (Smithfield development). This would mean the eviction of 100s of Market traders whom some have been there for 30 years and some being there many more. These traders have been offered nothing to set up somewhere else, some traders are in the market because they can not afford the prices out side of the market. These traders have not been guaranteed a place to come back to after the renovation, no dates or plans. After several meeting with developers they said they considered a market consists of 5 traders. With little or no feedback from the developers and being keep in the dark by Birmingham city council. This is completely unfair as to many this is not just a market, it is a home and has been for many hundreds of years. If this goes ahead many small local businesses will close their doors for the last, the market promote the "support your local small business" slogan but plan to put high end names and food chain in the place of these small businesses. Many other people my age and I appreciate the historic value of the market itself, and would hate to see the memories go with it. We appreciate every one who takes the time to sign this thank you!
