A major study into Brixton’s economy sets out key challenges and opportunities for local businesses, residents and investors
Today we are publishing the Brixton Economic Action Plan, the culmination of 18 months of research led by economic development consultants Regeneris. The report will allow us to better understand the make-up of Brixton’s local economy and its place in Lambeth and London. It also sets out some of the key economic challenges and opportunities facing local businesses, residents and investors.
Regeneris has identified seven areas for action including:
- New space to accommodate economic growth
- Space for enterprise, new Ideas and experimentation
- Enhancing the local environment and infrastructure
- Supporting Brixton’s businesses to adapt and grow
- Improve external perceptions of Brixton as an economic location
- Linking Brixton’s residents to opportunities
- Recognising and nurturing social value
