Who will control the Somerleyton Rd development?

Since 2013 Brixton Green have been in partnership with Lambeth Council to develop plans for Somerleyton Road with the aim of delivering a community-led, financially viable, well governed and accountable body that would hold and lock the development ‘in trust’ for the long term benefit of the community.
About more than just the bricks and mortar

  • We believe that creating and sustaining a great place has to be about more than just bricks and mortar.
  • We believe that the future development at Somerleyton Road should be managed by an organisation who puts the interests of the community first and is accountable to them.
  • We do not believe that the site should be handed over to a housing association or private managing agent.


If Lambeth decide to:
  • Not proceed with the new accountable body or,
  • They propose a body that would not be able to ensure the site is managed in the interest of the community,
Then Brixton Green’s trustees will need to consider their role in the partnership with Lambeth.
This is because the accountable body has been a cornerstone of the shared vision for a long time and that is what trustees have been mandated to work for.

Keeping you updated
We hope Lambeth make the most of this opportunity which local people have worked so hard to create. We will keep you updated on how the discussions proceed.
