Merton's Council Leader addresses concerns of Wimbledon Village traders

Labour Leader Stephen Alambritis took questions from business owners at a meeting last night.

Traders are worried about the fast decline of the High Street, which has lost 33 shops in 2 years.

It's not just the independents that have gone; chains like Cafe Rouge or Costa have either gone or are going.

Business leaders say parking is the number one concern, and have asked the council to urgently address the issue.

An hour's parking can cost as much as £3, and they say this is a major deterrent for people coming to use the High Street. They also claim the reason it is bustling on a Sunday is because parking is free.

Mr Alambritis blames the loss of shops on business rates, which he is powerless to change.

Adrian Mills, Chair of the Wimbledon Village Business Association, says he hopes Mr Alambritis has now got the message.

Liz Beaumont works at her sister's shop Deborah Beaumont Interiors.

She explains why she's so exasperated.
