Tenants’ livelihoods should be safeguarded especially during the COVID pandemic but thousands of small businesses renting from the Arch Co face insecurity and spiralling rents.

Railway arches, once publicly owned by Network Rail, were sold to the Arch Co by the Tory government in 2019. The Arch Co claims it has a ‘Tenants First’ approach but its tenants are being squeezed. It conceded a 3 month rent suspension during the first lockdown which many lost out on, and now tenants feel it is showing zero  sensitivity to their plight.  

We support Arch co's tenants who are striving for fair, affordable and secure tenancies. 

ArchCo must protect not damage the sustainability of thousands of small businesses in railway arches across Britain.

ArchCo must stop increasing rents during the pandemic.

ArchCo should not set arbitrary rents. They must be transparent and affordable .  

ArchCo must offer leases with security of tenure that allow tenants to invest and plan for the future.

Covid spells ruin for many small businesses. ArchCo should at least match landlords like Transport for London (TFL) who are protecting jobs and small businesses with better support measures.

Arch Co should meet with tenants and their local elected representatives to safeguard local economies and reduce the harmful impacts of their practices.

We call on ArchCo to heed the concerns of the tenants association the Guardians of the Arches.
