The proposal is to provide upgraded market stalls, 40 new homes and commercial space. The planning committee passed by three votes to two.
The first meeting was covered here.
Yoo Capital is also involved with the development of Olympia.
Several Market Traders remain vehemently opposed to the proposal and posted on x;
“Tonight’s vote to waive through the gentrification of Shepherd’s Bush Market is a shameful decision to side with corporate greed.
“Labour councillors asked performative questions about gentrification, trader retention and arch disrepair only to vote the application through.
“The Council have sided with the developer and ignored community and trader concerns for 18 months. Tonight just 3 councillors voted to approve an application which will push out traders and destroy the market’s diversity and character. We will continue to fight this application and the rampant gentrification it represents.”
The Mayor’s Office could still call in the proposal.
