2 December (Part 2) - Well done Bexley council

I received a report from a trader in Long Lane on Wednesday that Bexley council was going to backtrack on charging shopkeepers for displays on their own land outside shops but only half believed it because it appears to be common practice by London boroughs. However the rumour was true; shops with a rateable value up to £12,000 are to be exempted from the charge and for others the fee is to be halved. Both changes to be backdated to last April. Bexley’s Licensing Committee chaired by councillor Mike Slaughter approved the relief for hard pressed shop keepers. Bexley council’s announcement.

Dare we look forward to more outbreaks of good sense?
