I’ll be announcing further details on business rates reforms shortly. But I can tell you now that Attendance Allowance will not be included.” This is fantastic news, and thank you so much to everyone that signed the petition and emailed the minister to help put pressure on him. It looks as though Attendance Allowance is safe for now!

  • Say No to 19 storeys in Catford
    UPDATE! 5/9/16 Lewisham Council’s Planning Dept have just confirmed that Barratt London have finally withdrawn their planning application for a 19 storey tower. They will instead implement the original consent for an 8 storey block on the site between the stations. This is a fantastic victory for sustained grassroots community action, and could not have happened without the support of all 1639 of you. A big thank you to everyone who turned out for the crucial Planning Committee meeting in March: this massive demonstration of local opposition contributed hugely to this wonderful final outcome. And special thanks to all those who helped spread the word locally, e.g. by distributing leaflets. We could not have summoned up such powerful and effective opposition without you.

  • Protect small cider producers
    Thanks to your support we were able to hand in a petition with over 26,000 signatures urging the Government to back small cider producers. On 8th July 2015, the Government responded in its Budget. The Chancellor has announced that the Government will retain the current duty exemption for small cider producers. This is excellent news for real cider drinkers and small producers alike. CAMRA is delighted with the Government’s commitment and will now be working hard to ensure that they can keep the promise with a legal exemption in the EU Directive. Thank you for making this a campaign win!
