A Place to Sit started this petition to LCP Group

The seating at our local shopping parade has been removed by the new owners, who want to increase footfall to the centre and claim the seats were an obstruction. The lack of seating means many people are excluded from using the centre, for shopping and for vital social contact. Many people need to sit and rest while shopping, including some older people, people with disabilities or mobility problems, people with buggies, and staff in the shops taking breaks. 

Without any seating, older people have had to sit on bins in order to rest. Parents sit with children on the pavement. And others have simply stopped using the centre alltogether.  

Having a place to sit and see other people is important for local people's health and wellbeing. Having seating will increase trade and help retain tenants. Restoring the seats will bring people back to the centre, and revive the community's faith in the new management. We the undersigned ask LCP Group to reinstate the seating as soon as possible and create a more welcoming centre in Bramley that local people, customers, and visitors to the area can be proud of.
