I have lived here for a while now and have witnessed dosens or hundreds of dmall businesse opening and closing. Some of them quite good ones that i was sad to see leave. My partner looked for a place to rent to open up his own business and the rental prices were ludicrous. Some small spaces were 4000 pounds per month. What small business can affort such a rent and make some sort of profit to be able to survive in this ever increasing expensive life. I think the smal businesses, especially start ups need to be more supported and pay less tax and rent.
