The Brixton Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) sets out an area called Brixton Central as a major area for growth and investment in the town centre. We now want local people to help set out proposals for the long-term future of this part of the town centre.
The two major landowners in the area, Lambeth Council and Network Rail, have jointly appointed AECOM and Fluid Architects to work with local people on a masterplan development brief for Brixton Central. This will be used to establish in more detail the type of development and public space in the area, its scale and how it should be delivered.
The Local Reference Group
The Local Reference Group will act as a sounding board for the development of the Brixton Central Masterplan Development Brief. The reference group has grown out of a series of individual and group meetings that Fluid held with local people and organisations to understand people’s priorities for the town centre.
Two Reference Group meetings have followed, with workshops exploring themes around potential land use, viability considerations and community benefits, as well as potential locations for different town centre activities across the Brixton Central area.

These events have involved many passionate and exciting discussions and you can read about some of the issues in the comments on this blog. We’ll review what people have said and feed this in to the development of the masterplan proposals, which we’ll bring back for further discussion in the summer.
