After a less than satisfactory set of statements by the developers of the Lambeth College site on Brixton Hill at the meeting organised by Chuka Umunna MP earlier this month, the partners have finally put more information in the public domain.
A website has been created at BrixtonHillCampus.com and an exhibition is being planned as an opportunity to see the plans so far and meet the team on two dates:
- Thursday 26 March between 2pm and 7.30pm
- Saturday 28 March between 11am and 3pm
Both exhibitions will take place at Lambeth College on Brixton Hill. Councillors will attend to press the developers to ensure fuller, clearer information is now available about the new buildings and the construction phase.
Future events are promised and the team have said they welcome comments at firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7566 7964.
Community campaigners who have years of experience growing food and raising animals in their gardens are now exploring the possibility of setting up a City Farm in Windmill Gardens by Brixton Windmill.
The residents suggest that Windmill Gardens could become a space to farm livestock for eggs, milk, meat, honey and wool; grow all kinds of vegetables, fruit, herbs and salads; come together to learn about local history; spend time outside leaning skills to lead healthier happier lives; and improve Brixton’s environment and explore sustainability.
The campaigners have set up a survey and are asking for comments by 22 March. Fill in your comments here.
Local MP Chuka Umunna is holding a People’s Question Time on 4 March for residents to raise concerns with him, councillors and others regarding the redevelopment of Lambeth College on Brixton Hill.
Whilst many residents seem to be in favour for the site remaining a centre of education, rather than housing or retail, there is widespread concern regarding the lack of consultation given to residents regarding the proposals, despite councillors raising this with developers.
