The empty shops campaigning is paying off, especially with the Blockbusters building, after six months of letter writing & lobbying at meetings. But we don't want to stop there. This whole corner of Hamlet Court Road & London Road could be something truly amazing! 

What would you like to see there? Possibly a Market? or a Skills Hub to learn ICT, Catering, Baking, Nutrition, Customer Service etc, pop-up units for people to try out business ideas, plus a multi-use area for events? See results of last year's campaign

It would probably need to be a joint effort: with charities, council and private investors involved and of course the current landlord, who has been onsite recently making repairs.
