Brixton Green February 2018 Newsletter

Lambeth rejects a community led approach and delays Somerleyton scheme yet again. Join our campaign to get community led housing built NOW…

After ten years of hard work and the contributions of hundreds of local residents Lambeth Council has rejected our community led approach to developing Somerleyton Road, even though our proposal is financially viable and is ready to go. You may have seen the cover of this months Brixton Bugle headlined “Fury as Council says, “we know best” on homes”.

Lambeth want to set up another subsidiary of the Council’s new wholly controlled development vehicle Homes for Lambeth to develop the site. But Somerleyton Road will be at the back of a long queue – its not even mentioned in the business plan. It will be years before they start work. In contrast our plan shows we can be on site in 12 months.
