Conclusions In the timeframe of a year the vacancy status of shops in Roman Road West has reduced from 16 vacant units to 14 vacant units. It has to be mentioned that, Roman Road Trust’s method of identifying vacancy was mostly based on visual analysis rather than an analysis of business rates. The movement in vacancy numbers has arisen from change of ownership rather than an absolute decrease of vacancy. There are 8 properties that have either changed ownership or name of the shop; Florescent to Luminor, Hugga Mug to Sazzy and Fran Cafe, Jameson Knight Estates to Naima Salon Hair & Beauty, Simply Beds and Furniture to Happy Nightmares, Bargain Emporium to E2 Express, Mezze BBQ and Steak Restaurant to Kebab & Co, Castle Management to Imporium Consultants Ltd., Destina Supermarket to Kay’s Local Supermarket. Furthermore, a series of local businesses have undertaken shop front improvements such as new signage, removal of graffiti or changing their shop shutters from closed to open grill. Two shops have become occupied, 65 Roman Road, E2 0QN (E.P. Life Style Tattoo) and 107 Roman Road, E2 0QN (Nola Cocktail Bar). Two shops are currently being renovated 109 Roman Road, E2 0QN (Roman Grocery) and 111 Roman Road, E2 0QN (Victoria Fish Bar). One shop has become vacant, 49 Roman Road, E2 0HU which was previously Cosmo Lettings.
