Make big developers compensate small business during construction

Make big developers compensate small business during construction

Each year big developers make millions from giant apartment buildings going up on tiny blocks, but the building process often causes the 'little guys' to suffer. Road closures under the guise of 'road works', removed car parks, noise and reduced store front visibility has a drastic effect on small businesses. The lost income caused by these developments is enough to cause a business to go under, and all because after years of successful trading customers find it too hard to make their way to the sore though no fault of the storeholder.

Why is this important?

Big developers should be responsible for the community they are moving into and should be made to compensate for the loss of business they cause.
