STOP the High Street Armageddon

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Owner of Michelin-starred restaurant Pied-à-Terre, David Moore, wants immediate action to be taken to save businesses and ultimately jobs with a thorough review of a sales tax as an alternative to business rates and to give the restaurant industry breathing space with a reduction on VAT for food sales.

As well as this, Moore wants leaseholds to be reviewed as tenants are trapped in upwardly moving only clauses meaning rental costs are constantly increasing.

Moore would like Mayor Sadiq Khan to discuss and tackle the poor state of the High street to save both popular food chains and small family and independent businesses.

The restaurant businesses on the High Street which employ hundreds of thousands of people in the UK are trying to support their families all over the country and need urgent help to survive.
