Amendments and additions

Amendment www.brixtonsociety.org.uk  and contact by email: planning@brixtonsociety.org.uk is the correct contact if you have any queries re: planning applications and may need further information from Brixton Society before going online at the Lambeth Council website.

Some local concerns if Lambeth decide not to send out paper notifications are we all aware what is going on in our backyards? Stress, density, noise pollution are all features of urban living.

On a ‘Plus note’ Bristol University Department of health have contacted a local Play Street co-ordinator to see if we would monitor children’s activity in Street play.

Next Play Street Rattray Road Sunday March 29th 2-5pm?  Awaiting confirmation. Get involved if you have children who want to participate or you want to help  passing the message on to neighbours.

Effra Residents are affiliated. Also did you see The Brix posted leaflet St. Matthew’s Peace Garden want history3Friends /www.thebrix.org/history2.html they are looking to reconfigure the Peace Garden

Our future plans include taking back into our ownership the surrounding “Peace Garden” which until the 1950s was St Matthews Churchyard. In 2012 and 2013, Brix trustees organised a local consultation which enabled us to develop plans for the extensive regeneration of the park to provide new leisure, recreation and social uses in a safer and more attractive environment. The next step is to attract major funding to allow the gardens to be re-landscaped and replanted.
