Protect independent businesses from rates hikes which will tear the heart from communities

Recent news

2,300 and counting!

Thank you so much to everyone who has signed and shared this petition. It’s great that we’ve already got about 2,300 supporters and reassuring to see so many people who agree that London’s fantastic independent businesses should be cherished and protected. We've had some great support in the press and on social media too. However, we need more supporters if we want the Government to sit up and take notice of the devastating impact their proposals will have on the social and cultural fabric of our communities. Please, if you haven’t done so already, tell your friends and family about this petition and urge them to sign and share it too, whether that be on Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, email or whatever. The more people who hear about it the better! If you’re a business, tell your customers about it and ask your staff to sign. Should you want a paper copy of the petition to put in your premises then please email and we’ll send one out to you. We can then add these signatures to the ones from our online petition when we present it to the Government. If tweeting, please use the #londonbisrates and add the handles @eastendtrades and @hackneycouncil. Let’s keep up the fight for our local businesses! Hackney Council and the East End Trades Guild
