Victory in Tram compo campaign!

A fair deal for shops and businesses at last!

Anna Soubry’s campaign for compensation for all small shops and busineses affected by the tram works has been successful. Notts County Council is now reconsidering a number of applications for compensation they previously refused.

“It took a petition of 3,000 plus shoppers, bringing the cameras to Beeston and a number of meetings but we have finally got there.” said Anna “I have already won an exceptional hardhip fund for shops and traders on High and Chilwell Roads in Beeston; the roads have been completely closed for almost eighteen months and businnesses are in danger of collapsing. I am very pleased both the City and County Councils have recently agreed to put in more money in to the fund. With out a fair deal, shops and businesses throughout Broxtowe are in danger of closing before the tram works open and they can take advantage of the benefits it promises.”

I would like to thank everyone who signed my petition and everyone who continues to support our great shops in Beeston and Chilwell. Special thanks go to County Councillors Richard Jackson, John Doddy and Steve Carr who continue to fight to make Beeston and Chilwell a great place to live, work, shop and play!
