Just a little pointer to the excitement that is plans to redevelop the area under the railway arches just a stone’s throw from us at the Brixton Green project in Somerleyton Road, to bring new homes, a theatre and a variety of different community resources. After years of lobbying, this community-led project has now had the go-ahead and is being funded through the detailed planning stage. They held a consultation event at Dexter’s playground recently at which over 100 people came.
Workstreams are now being set up that aim to involve local people in all aspects of the future planning of this project. Let’s make sure our views are represented – there’s more information here on the Brixton Green Site and here on the site of the people organising the next stage of the consultations.
