Save Brixton Arches
Stop the Evictions
Stop Lambeth Council and Network Rail ripping the heart out of our community.
The independent shops and businesses in the railway arches in Atlantic Road and Station Road are at risk. Their Landlord, Network Rail, in partnership with Lambeth Council, propose to evict over 30 units in order to complete a facelift, estimated to take over a year. Once completed, tenants will face massive rent increases of around 300%, which in effect, will exclude them from the area Generations of these families have served the local community through thick and thin, for over eighty years.
Together with the market, they are at the heart of Brixton's long-established, diverse trading community. We want them to continue to provide our community with the goods and services that we rely on. We want to see that community continue to thrive in the future.
We are proud of the blending of different cultures and customs that has characterised our past and shaped our neighbourhood, One Brixton, Our Brixton.
We need to all stand up and make our voice heard together.
A petition has been started to call on Network rail to immediately stop the planned eviction of dozens of Brixton businesses from arches on Station Road and Atlantic Road.
